A thread dump of the hung Tomcat might well bring more light
to the situation. To me at least this sounds like a thread starvation
issue (for some reason, the request processing threads are not
recycled to serve future requests). The thread dump might well bring
insight as to what the reason might be.

One reason for the starvation might be some deadlock situation across
separate threads accessing the database.

Other things to check are the memory and CPU usage of the hung
Tomcat process - they might also provide some more clues.
