Well now for the facepalm moment. I updated our kernel for Scientific
Linux for a security update and it seems to have solved this problem.
I will endeavor to find what bug was fixed now.

failing kernel: kernel-2.6.32-504.30.3.el6.x86_64
working kernel: kernel-2.6.32-573.el6.x86_64

Julian, thank you so much for your help. It is really appreciated.
