Which kernel are (or were) you running - your question made me realize that I hadn't yet rebooted to run the latest kernel update (2.6.9-1.681_FC3). More Googling has just revealed that Andrew Morton has a futex_wait- fix.patch in 2.6.10-rc1-mm5, which most likely our Fedora friends put in the latest rpm.

Anyway, the good news is, that balsa now exits properly. Can you try that
too,  since I see from your second mail you've reproduced the problem?

Sigh. It appears I spoke too soon. Balsa now sometimes exits properly and sometimes hangs :-( Anyway, unless anyone has a good suggestion, I'll
assume this is a kernel bug and go bark up that tree for a while...
