I assume you're in the root directory when doing this.
By default /vol is a automount filesystem controlled by vold.
(use "df -a" to list all the special mounts and check if this
is the case on your system. It'll probably hang when trying to
list /vol though...)
If vold isn't responding when it's expected too, it would cause this.
Try shutting down vold (/etc/init.d/volmgt stop)
and see if that fixes things. If it doesn't check that the vold
process has actually exited, if not, try killing it, if it doesn't kill,
or kill -9, then disable it's automatic starting and reboot.
If stoping it does work, then check if restarting the service brings
the problem back.
