This is a complete guess at this point, but it sounds like the sockets
are taking a while to timeout and reset. To look a bit deeper at the
issue, while the broker is hanging, take a thread dump so that you can
see exactly where the broker is hanging.

The thread dumps should help to confirm it, but if this guess is
correct, there were a couple of bug fixes for this issue that were
included in ActiveMQ 5.1 and 5.2:

perl -e 'print unpack("u30","D0G)U8V4\@4VYY9&5R\"F)R=6-E+G-N>61E<D\!G;6%I;\"YC;VT*"
