If you want to reproduce the "pause" you can clear your cache (Safari menu -> Empty Cache).  I can consistently reproduce the unexpected pause.
Could pipelining be a problem?  (HTTP 1.1.)
I posted a patch in bug 393263 that fixes the redirect problem.  Could possibly fix the Safari hang, but that's unconfirmed.  If any of you could look at the patch it'd be helpful, though.  Thanks.

Oops, I should've added this a long time ago: when you resize the Safari browser window, the "freeze/hang" goes away, and the page redirects.  It's like they have problems with their DOM implementation, and the webpage DOM events don't bubble up via a notification, and thus the browser shell never redirects properly until that resize.
