Thanks I will give that a try. If I find that problem corresponds to tag
cache save, is there any solution other than turning off the tag cache?

If you have the tag cache enabled, I believe it is saved to disk every hour.
That shouldn't be enough to cause your symptoms unless your system is
stressed from other tasks. You could use --d_info debugging to see when the
save is happening to see if it is the culprit.
