Had this same question, and popped into #rc5 and asked someone. Forgot
who it was, but they said it was still working (hence 100% CPU usage).

Check the datestamps on buff-in and buff-out. Even when the program is
"hung" they should still change accordingly.

The problem you are describing is a bug with the logging system... it
will still continue chugging away.
