As indicated by various recent threads to this effect, many versions
of cassandra (including current 1.0.x release) contain bugs which
sometimes prevent repair from completing. The other threads suggest
that some of these bugs result in the state you are in now, where you
do not see anything that looks like appropriate activity.
Unfortunately the only solution offered on these other threads is the
one I will now offer, which is to restart the participating nodes and
re-start the repair. I am unaware of any JIRA tickets tracking these
bugs (which doesn't mean they don't exist, of course) so you might
want to file one. :)
