What is your hardware (memory, CPU type and such)?

This seems like a cache issue to me, but I can't tell for sure without 
some additional information on your system:

1) What is the amount of a) available memory b) free memory and c) 
memory available to i/o buffers?

2) What is the swap usage if any?

3) What is the CPU load? Any noticeable patterns in CPU load?

You can use /usr/bin/top to obtain most of this information.
