As a Lisper i like car problems ;-)
A quick shot into the dark: could this be DNS related? I think you never told
us what sort of virtual hosting you do. Iff you have enough virtual hosts 
whose domain name doesn't resolve _and_ your server is set up in a way that
requires DNS lookups _and_ you have a lot of virtual hosts the startup
process might timeout.
Hmm, doesn't sound too likely ...
