What do you see in FileLog? I would guess the fileserver is failing to
contact a dbserver or something if it appears to be hanging. Drop a
pstack (or 'thread apply all bt' in gdb) in a pastebin or something, if
you want to know what it's doing.

It's not a named pipe. It's usually implemented over a unix domain
socket, but that's irrelevant. It's just trying to log which 'thing'
over SYNC is failing; someone at some point called that 'thing' a
'circuit', apparently ("FSSYNC" is one; "SALVSYNC" in DAFS is another).
