Aha! I think I found this bug. In viewcvs, I had enscript enabled, but
didn't have the enscript binary installed. I tracked this down by doing
a wget -m, and reading the file just before the one that stalled. It had
a backtrace because of the enscript failure, and I guess viewcvs didn't
cleanup well afterwards.

The wget -m seems to be doing fine now that I have enscript installed.
