1. Yes, obviously I launched that command when the program was blocked.

2. The system release is "SUSE SLES 10 SP4 64 BIT" with kernel 
Maybe it's not the last release but it can justify the blocks ? In other systems (VMWARE) the same system work fine.
What you suspect ? libpq ? linux release ? hardware ? 

If you need other informations let me know.  

Regards, Andrea

That means it's not waiting in a kernel call right now. Was the program 
in the hung state you've observed at the time you ran the command? Its 
output would only be interesting when it's hung.

Old kernel, maybe? You're running on some kind of enterprise-y distro, 
so who knows how ancient half the stuff in there is.
