/sbin/dump -0uanL -f - / | ssh dd of=/var/ftp/dump_images/mx1-root-test

dump has completed only once. Several other dumps have all gotten under way, target file is created and increases until the hang.  

CTRL-C gets back to shell,eg:

  DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Fri Jul 10 10:25:33 2009
  DUMP: Date of last level 0 dump: the epoch
  DUMP: Dumping snapshot of /dev/da0s1d (/usr) to standard output
  DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
  DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories]
  DUMP: estimated 1713942 tape blocks.
  DUMP: dumping (Pass III) [directories]
  DUMP: dumping (Pass IV) [regular files]
^C  DUMP: Interrupt received.
  DUMP: Do you want to abort dump?: ("yes" or "no") Killed by signal 2.
  DUMP: Broken pipe
  DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.

Hangs always in Pass IV

Plenty of google hits for "dump hang freebsd 7.1" but I can't find one with a solution.
