Nginx stuck on startup

Hi everyone,

Recently I've needed to restart nginx on my vps (which is debian wheezy) and
it got stuck. Other services are fine but nginx not responding if there is a
file operation involved. For example nginx -h prints out fine, but nginx -t
is just waiting. How can I examine problem?

dmesg and messages are clean. disk and memory usage is not even %50.

This is probably not an nginx-specific error but it's disturbing. I've tried
to downgrade nginx a bit but not worked.

Thanks for any suggestions.
