NETCA, DBCA, and Deinstalls hanging in new 10g RAC build

On a new two-node Solaris 10 / cluster, after clusterware has been installed
successfully and the cluster is formed, and after the initial install of binaries;
the netca and dbca tools are hanging - refusing to display when we start building

There are no error messages, just sitting there with no GUI display occurring.

The odd thing is that xclock/xlogo displays w/o issues, OUI runs without issues, and the
binaries installs are quick and smooth.

Then attempting to uninstall the binaries thinking to reinstall, the deinstaller sits there at 0%
on the progress indicator for 15 minutes with nothing happening until we kill the process.

This is our 5th 10g RAC build this year, all Solaris/ and there were no similar issues
with any of those builds.
