OK, that's not issue 773.

I suppose you could try using strace to identify what Apache is doing.
Run a checkout and use top to identify the active thread attach, then
use something like "strace -Tp <pid>" to see how much time each system
call takes. I'm assuming that it must be blocking in a system call as
it's not using CPU, but I'm not an Apache expert so I may be talking

Which Apache MPM are you using? Can you try a different one?
