Could you be running out of entropy? See for example this discussion:


Check if your APR is using /dev/random (which may be slow) or /dev/
urandom (which should always be fast), and recompile it with the
latter if necessary.

This may not be it though, since your problem is so predictable.
Usually entropy problems occur more randomly.
