I ran into similar behavior doing relatively the same thing. I have a 
servlet that accepts XML via HTTP POST. When I first ran the servlet and 
did my first POST to it, it would sit there, for a disturbingly long 
period of time before I would see any output or receieve a response, but I 
would eventually get one. After that first run everything would run fine. 
So, what I am saying is, yes that has happened to me. 

Unfortunately, since it was just an experimental thing I was playing with 
I never took the time to figure out what it was. I don't know if it was 
just an object I was using that took a long time to instantiate (not 
likely)... or if it was the Application Server we use (WebSphere 2.??) 
that was freaking out on something.

I have seen similar behavior when there was more than one copy of a 
*.class I was trying to use in the class path (I imagine something was 
getting confused). I don't know for sure.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help, just thought I would let you know I feel 
your pain.
