I had similar issues at one time with MySQL and FreeRADIUS.  There is an
app out there for MySQL called Mytop which is basically like the unix
"top" command, but looks at MySQL processes.  This makes it very easy to
watch and see what processes are taking too long and holding up the rest.

I'm not sure if there is a similar app out there for postgresql, but
it'd be worth a look.
