Possible memory leak or concurrency issue?

I'm covering all bases here, and i currently have my ISP investigating their logs - But i am experiencing some rotten timeouts and general slowdown on my forum install.
The forum will become non resposive for over 2 minutes, sometimes timing out completely, and various intervals - and i cant work out why?

I have tried disabling all extentions, and the same problem occurs.

What leads me to perhaps think that it isnt the ISP's fault is that when the forum is running slow, opening a fresh browser corrects the problem completely and it is lightning fast again (which it usually is). If it was a server issue, then a new browser instance would make no difference non?

Incidentally, the forum usually has a max of 15-20 concurrent users and has about 200 topics i would say.

The thread where we are reporting timeouts is here:

    I had no problems accessing it, but if you have access and error logs available for your account, you could quickly look to see what the most common error is with some details as to what's causing it. It could be any combination of things, but it could be something completely unrelated as well.

    Could this have anything to do with the 'php_ini' setting on your server? What's the limit? I'm not a programmer, but I found I had a memory problem with IntegraMOD, a modified version of PhpBB, simply because my host's set (and non-negotiable) memory limit with this "php_ini" setting was 8m. I am seriously considering installing Vanilla on the very same host's server, so any further information would be great. Or I might just install it anyway, and see how it goes, as Vanilla is still young... :)
