It's OK but since xen-tools is a separate project with its own lists etc
you might find you get more answers over on those lists

Since I think xen-tools is mostly just shell scripts I'd expect the "ps"
would be able to tell you what it was doing -- i.e. which subprocess was
blocked and/or slow. strace might help too.

It would be better to report the bug to the xen-tools guys and get it
fixed than to route around it IMHO.
