I think this is another problem that I'm in the middle of trying to
figure out.

It -looks- to me that something goes wrong in the tty code when a large
file is piped through a pty, causing the kernel to hang for minutes in
the workqueue / ldisk flush code. I've just sent an initial report to
Alan Cox about it and am currently bisecting it.

Cheers,
Ben.
