@jayhendren good to know. After poking at this on my own system, would udisks be a more likely culprit? Again, this is an area I haven't had much experience with, so I'm tinkering trying to figure some of this out.

@illuminÉ, I think I'm going to split this off into two separate questions. My first question is answered pretty clearly by your comment, so I'll edit this and redefine it as strictly the first part if you'd like to post your comment as an answer. I'll ask my other questions again with more focus now that I have a better understanding of what's going on.

Yeah, I'm hoping someone else knows. I've been using Gentoo for awhile, but rarely muck around in the more complicated stuff. I'm not quite sure how setting abi_x86_32(-) is impacting my issue though. I haven't quite wrapped my head around what it means.

I guess as a follow-up question 1a: what sets MULTILIB_USDEP?

Aha, that appears to answer the first part. Now to determine how that relates to the second in causing the whole thing to fail an update.

I'm not sure of the answer, but my limited knowledge says it probably has something to do with udev.

comment How (if possible) can I terminate a specific blocker hanging a program?
I was able to track down a /bin/bash process launched by geany using ps fux and kill it, which freed geany to continue. I do still wonder whether or not a syscall can be closed/killed independently of killing the entire process, though, or how difficult using a debugger to do that would be.
