I've been basically disregarding the "It's hanging!" part of the bug
report because it doesn't make sense to me (yet).  I don't understand
why ovs-bugtool or xen-bugtool would hang.  There are built-in
timeouts throughout these scripts.  And calling an invalid ovs-ofctl
function doesn't hang.  Far from it:

    blp at hardrock:~/db/_build$ time utilities/ovs-ofctl status
    ovs-ofctl: unknown command 'status'; use --help for help

    real    0m0.002s
    user    0m0.000s
    sys     0m0.000s
    blp at hardrock:~/db/_build$
