I think you may be describing a different problem. For one thing, we don't use ntpdate, we use the "ntpd -g -q" alternative. Secondly, for us ntpd is hanging 100% of the time when run via a Python thread class. The exception is Python 2.5.1; this succeeds 100% of the time.

We have a variety of 1U and 3U boxes. They all hang the same way.
