Hmmm, sounds like DNS lookups (normally what ours pause for anyway).

q: when multiple proxies block at the same time, is it only on an ICP
   query, or on a normal end-user query (handled by that proxy)

q2: If it is on an ICP query, is it just between them only, or to the
   QuestNet proxies as well?

q3: anything consistent in the URL's being requested around such an error?
   (remember, it could be before or after the log entry it pauses on.)
