Well, it would really help to know where it's stuck. I don't see any
reason why it would be doing nothing for that long.

Could you just get a ps output, find a few minutes old deliver process
and then do both:

strace -p pid 2>log
(wait for a couple of seconds, then ctrl-c)

gdb attach pid
(copy&paste the output)

And show me what they said.
