I just tried it here and could not replicate it. Could you run your test 
with this patch applied to the open-iscsi git code?

Could you run iscsid with

iscsid -d 8 -f &

and send that output, and then could you make the iscsi modules with 

make DEBUG_ISCSI=1 install

What do you mean by hangs? You run iscsiadm -m .... -l and that never 
completes? The timeout for this might a little long now. It could be 
around 2 minutes.
