ZFS dedup and temporary freeze

As far as I am aware ezjail has the option to use compression and disable
access time updates.
ezjail_zfs_properties="-o compression=lzjb -o atime=off"
In my case the dedup option was turned on only in the basejail causing the
system to temporarily freeze. Once the dedup option was removed everything
went back to normal.
What I am trying to figure out here is why did this occur.
