How does it look when you enable displaying individual threads in top?
Some threads will be pretty much idle most of them time, while others
should be quite busy. If it really seems to hang somewhere, attaching
a gdb should show where exactly the threads stall (in particular the
main one). But seeing the high aggregate CPU load, I'm not sure that's
what's happening.
