The only thing I was able to do was reduce the amount of stuff going to
syslog. On second thought, Apache shouldn't be affected by this, since
it's not using syslog. Only daemons using syslog would freeze when this
happened. The quick check was to kill -TERM syslog and see if things got
faster again.

Hmmm, is there an fd leak (or is this server near max fds for the
process) that ends up waiting for an fd to free?
