cfagent hanging and eating CPU

I just recently enabled cfexecd from Cfengine 2.0.8p1 on my Solaris systems
(mostly 8, some 7 and 9) running standalone as a daemon (rather than from
cron).  I'm finding hung cfagent processes throughout my environment now,
some of which are killing the systems they're on.  I don't have any useful
diagnostic output (like truss or debug output) right now because I'm unable
to duplicate the condition on demand, though it happens on several of our
systems daily.

What I don't understand is that I have this in my control section:

  ExpireAfter = ( 60 )

How is it that these processes are continuing to run?  What mechanism does
cfengine use to limit the run time?  It it using some internal method of
watching or calling ulimit?

Is this a known issue or something anyone else has run across?

Thanks,
Steve
