Were you viewing any files using an external viewer?  I've found
that Firefox often `hangs' when opening a second PDF using xpdf --
until I quit the other xpdf instance.

I haven't investigated this further as I figured it was caused by
a plugin.  But it sounds kind of similar, so I thought I'd offer
this up just in case.
