Just to circle back, the RH folks via bugzilla gave us a simple reproducer which hangs and they've assigned it to the glibc folks. I am also finding (as mentioned by someone else previously) that httpd will not start when using an EC2 32-bit image.  I hope they fix this soon, because without apache, I'm going to have to hold off adopting Fedora 14 and stick with FC8 for now (the non-32-bit images are only available in large size and therefore more expensive).

Thanks for everyone's quick responses!

Very interesting... that's the same function that is causing httpd to
hang for some people, as noted here:
Not really sure what that means, but I do find it interesting that
they're both hanging on the same system call.
