@jestabro assigning to you but feel free to pass it to another team member

Naive attempts to reproduce on 1.3.3 are not successful, yet (Vmware; KVM), but will continue to investigate; any other information is welcome @Viacheslav, should you recall ...

I remember there was an ancient bug where the commit-archive rewrite did not come with a timeout. As routing might not have been converged during boot, that could explain the lock.

Can you upgrade to 1.3.7?

@jestabro It was a report from the user; unfortunately, I do not have more details.

Yes, @c-po that would be a reasonable explanation; the timeout was added for Equuleus by 1.3.4. Without a reporting user to ask; other reports on later version; or further information, I would vote to close ...
