Check your workspace log for errors:

less workspace/.metadata/.log

Or tail while saving:

tail -f workspace/.metadata/.log

This was a great idea, though no new logs came up while saving – Seth Hikari Apr 12 '11 at 19:13
try starting eclipse from the command line and see if it outputs any errors to the terminal – sreimer Apr 12 '11 at 19:18
No errors were reported and I tried using -clean command, but did not help – Seth Hikari Apr 12 '11 at 19:27
Removed build automatically fixed the issue. – Seth Hikari Apr 12 '11 at 19:44
problem was the time it took to build a large shared library – Seth Hikari Apr 16 '11 at 18:52

One way is to rename .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.ui.workbench/workbench.xml to workbench.xml.bak. This basically wipes the workbench state. After starting eclipse it seems to have stopped from this condition of hanging on cleaning/building the workspace.
