Are you using InnoDB?
This sounds like a MyISAM issue.
MyISAM does table level locking. InnoDB does row locking. So a transaction should not hang in InnoDB unless two processes are attempting to modify the same record, whereas it can happen in MyISAM if two processes are trying to modify the same table.
