1. rpc.pwdauthd gets badly hung

Running the shadow scheme on SunOs 4.1.4

After doing a good job of verifying a couple user passwds,
rpc.pwdauthd gets hung so bad it can't be killed, no one else can log on,
and any
attempts to rlogin or telnet in result in these processes getting hung.

Doing a ps on pwdauthd gives  a
flag field F of 488000
and a WCHAN field of au_iocb

Any of you guys know what this wait state is?

Thanks,
