Well, it happened only when I was working on the build script. On the other hand I've been working on the build script on my local Win10 VM (vmware fusion) for the last two days without any lockups. I've still got a couple of issues to resolve there thanks to some updates from Mingw-w64 and I'll be afk most of today. It will probably be Thursday before I'm ready to try again on the ovirt VM.
