I have two more observations on this:

- when it hangs in the login shell /bin/sh, a Ctrl-C on the terminal
  cancels the hang and a new login: appears;

- regardless of the shell, if one starts the MUA 'mutt' (an alpha-mode
  MUA) and below this a 'vim' to write the mail, on return from 'vim' to
  'mutt' (the vim is already terminated as process) the 'mutt' hangs too
  and on Ctrl-C it resumes normal operation;

I will file a bug issue, even if I don't know exactly for which
component. The system is 11-CURRENT from January of this year, compiled
from SVN source. The ports are anyway, because it is reproducible with
the base system on login with /bin/sh as login shell.
