That's an awful lot of queries. I would try to find out which query is 
causing the hangup. Put this in wp-config.php:

define('SAVEQUERIES', true);

And then in the footer put this:

if (current_user_can('switch_themes')){
    global $wpdb;
    echo "<pre>";
    echo "</pre>";

That will show you each query, what function called it and how long that 
query took to execute. I just added the switch_themes permission so all 
the regular visitors don't get a large dump at the bottom of the page, 
so you need to be logged in as an admin, or change the permission to 
something lower.
