Not useful unfortunately. That backtrace just shows the server in an 
idle/steady state, waiting for a packet.

It is most likely a slow LDAP, SQL or other DB blocking the server, 
though it's odd that it reports being hung in <core>

You are probably better off asking on the -users list.


Alan/Arran - seems a number of people reported an increase in these 
upgrading to later 2.2.x - was the logging made more verbose?
