Can you give more details about the freeze?
 - FreeBSD version?
 - CPU, memory?
 - Full Python version?

On "freeze", the process uses 0% or 100% of the CPU time? You can use the 
strace program to trace Python activity during the freeze.

Your might try my clone of strace,, which works on FreeBSD without 
the Linux emulation (but on FreeBSD, only i386 is supported):

You can try the isolate the bug? Remove some code, disable functions, etc.
