Sometimes my repository or build just seems to stop

Anchor(deadlock)Red Hat 9 and Fedora Core 1 are known to have buggy implementations of the pthreads multi-threading API. If you're running one of these, please consider upgrading to Fedora Core 2 or higher.

The Linux implementation of pthreads has gone through a lot of revisions. Red Hat 9 was the first Red Hat release to use the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NPTL NPTL (Native POSIX Thread Library) rewrite]. The first few OS releases which included it had some subtle bugs which are most often observed in fairly complicated multi-threaded applications such as Vesta. By Fedora Core 2 these problems seem to have been resolved.
