We have the offender:

This library is a workaround for bug #4344135 of JDK 1.3.1 on Linux:

# A thread currently waiting on a I/O operation will not wake up if one
# of the files involved is actually closed (last close - the file is
# no longer accessible but the thread is still waiting in the kernel).
# The library is dynamically linked to the JVM
# iff the J2SE_PREEMPTCLOSE environment variable is set to 1
if [ "$J2SE_PREEMPTCLOSE" = 1 ]; then
   export LD_PRELOAD

Unsetting the J2SE_PREEMPTCLOSE gets rid of the problem.

Thanks for your help.
