swish-e 2.1 hangs for a very long time

What did I do wrong?

here's the scenario

/usr/local/bin/swish-e \
   -i \
   -f swish-e/spider.CamelsRFun.index.tmp -v 3 -S http 
Parsing config file 'swish-e/SPIDER.GENERIC.CONFIG' 
Indexing Data Source: "HTTP-Crawler" 
Indexing "" 
retrieving (0)... 
retrieving (0)...

Gets stuck here for maybe 5-10 minutes with 99% CPU usage
but no packets are being sent/received via the network.
It then moves on in what appears to be a normal fashion
