Default re-appearance of `waiting for lock' bug?

updating from an old 2006 pkg based install to latest 2008 and have
gotten pretty far along... right now emerging udev in an
emerge -vuDN system
command.

The emerge is hung at:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild U ] sys-fs/udev-120 [087-r1] USE="(-selinux)" 0 kB

Total: 1 package (1 upgrade), Size of downloads: 0 kB

>>> Verifying ebuild Manifests...

>>> Emerging (1 of 1) sys-fs/udev-120 to /
waiting for lock on /var/tmp/portage/sys-fs/.udev-120.portage_lockfile

And has been there a good while.

Looking at the bugs I see it mentioned but says it was fixed quite
sometime ago.

Any suggestions of how to get past this item and on with updating world?

Ctrl-C to kill the emerge and
rm /var/tmp/portage/sys-fs/.udev-120.portage_lockfile

then try again

Egad and how many times have done that in other situations...

I tried emerge -vC udev followed by emerge -v udev

No help

Its just udev-120 that does this.

Before seeing your post I backed up to udev-119 and went right thru.
So must still be something a little off there.

However I emerged udev again and deleted the lock file as recommended
and 120 went right thru.

120 must be the first version that concerns itself with lock files.

I've seen similar messages a few times on my boxes recently, but each
time the emerge got going again after a short while. So I never really
bothered finding out exactly what is going on.

You mentioned a reported bug earlier, do you have a link that describes
it more?

I believe portage recently switched to using parallel-fetch by default,
which causes a similar message to appear if the build thread catches up
with the fetch thread. In this situation, it is, essentially, harmless,
and is just a message to say "I haven't died".
