Have you installed packages from any repositories other than
opensolaris.org and extra? I've installed packages from those and also
from contrib, bionicmutton, and jucrpending.

If it's a package(s) that is causing this problem, I imagine one should
first consider packages from non-standard repositories as the possible

Still, I wish I knew of a way to get debug info about what is going on.
