5.0.1 pkg_install hang

I've been doing a lot of pkg (2009Q2) installations over ftp on systems I
recently upgraded to NetBSD 5.0.1. I noticed that the pkg_add
shipped with NetBSD 5.0.1 hangs on some packages installation.
The state of the process is 'netio'. fetching the package using ftp
to the current directory works fine, and pkg_add can find it and
On packages with lots of dependancies (e.g. cups), several packages will
need to be fectched by hand, but not all of them.
Did anyone else notice that ? has it been fixed later ?
