Tut, tut, you didn't specify your Cocoon version! :)

Anyway, a little trick I often use when a program hangs for ages is to get 
it to display a stack trace. With Sun's Solaris JVM this is done by sending 
a SIGQUIT to the VM, which is either CTRL+\ if it is a foreground process on 
the current terminal, or

kill -QUIT x

where x is the pid of the java process, if it is a background process (as 
yours probably would be).

I know you can do it in Linux Blackdown with a CTRL+\ if it is in the 
foreground. Don't know about the IBM JDK.

Unfortunately this doesn't always work, and isn't always helpful. E.g. bad 
FTP connections screw it up. But it's worth a try.

Sounds like an IBM compiler bug to me, at a guess.
