Note: this is a guess...
What does the system appear to be doing during that time? I/O? Is the
process CPU-bound? If the machine and disk are mostly idle, I would
tend to suspect DNS queries that are timing out. Are you connected to
the net during this time? See what 'tcpdump -p -v' says.
If, on the other hand, the disk is busy the whole time, I'd tend to
suspect something about the buffer cache. How much RAM do you have?
