strace one of the processes & see if it's making any system calls at all.
pstack a process multiple times to get PC samples.
gcore a process to get a core dump & take a look at the core dump with gdb.
If you know that a specific account is likely to have this issue, enable
IMAP protocol logging for the account. This may tell you something.
