Service update - hanging on "creating service definition" floating point raster

I have some floating point rasters in an enterprise geodatabase, and they are added to the mxd without problem. Pyamids and statistics are built, spatial reference is set. But when I try to publish it, the dialog gets stuck on the "creating service definition" dialog (Packaging in progress ...), and nothing seems to happen - eventually I am forced to kill the ArcMap session.

Any ideas on what could cause this, and how to work around it?
