No one can tell you how to fix it until they know what the problem is.  
Is it because of your custom module?  (check by removing your module and 
waiting for it to "hang".)  Is it because of a network or OS related 
problem (or patch, e.g. reloading a firewall)?  Is it because of 
specific types of requests?  (Put a hook in your module to log incoming 
connections and the requested URL to get more information).  If it does 
it without any custom modules, you may want to ask your OS provider, and 
perhaps the HTTPD users' list instead of this one.

Just use some simple isolation troubleshooting to pin-point the problem, 
and then we may be able to help, depending on what you find.
