Good call, but I believe I may have ruled this out. I didn't upgrade to
3.1.3, but both sides are running 3.1.1 protocol version 31 now. Same

I think the key insight was in the strace log which showed the select()
call was timed out. If I knew what type of file descriptor it was being
fed, I might have a clue. It might have been a socket or something on
disk. I don't know.
