If the hang-up is due to ntpdate(1) timeout-out trying to connect to
time servers, then you should consider setting the variable
$ntpdate_timeout to a smaller value in the ldmadmin(1)
You should be able to verify if ntpdate(1) timeouts are the problem by
repeatedly executing the command "ldmadmin checktime". The order in
which the time-servers are accessed is random, so you'll have to execute
the command many times to get a feel for it.

I've seen that only when the CPU is very, very busy. The new features
in the LDM should not be the cause.
