Subshell hangs


I am trying to port mc to cygwin.
I was able to build it from CVS, then fixed problem in regex which was
making mc
At the moment my main problem is that subshell, invoked from mc hangs very
It hangs when a proces, invoked from shell is about to return and shell
must display command prompt, but this doesn't happen. Control-O, Control-C,
Control-Z, Control-D, Control-break don't help, and the only fix is just to
close the terminal window with mc....
This also happens if just hit Enter few times.
Interestingly enough  this happens much more frequently while running mc in
rxtvt or xterm, than while running from command prompt box.
I attached gdb to mc when this happened, the call stack of mc is as follows:

Attaching to hanging bash didn't give me any useful information since my
bash doesn't have debug info.
My bash is 2.05a-2 and cygwin.dll is 1.3.9.
I noticed that ps marks the hanging bash with "S" in front of the record:
S     496    1572     496       1600    1  500 22:44:19 /usr/bin/bash

Any ideas what can be wrong?
