Sloooooowwwww WSGI restart

I'm running a WSGI app under apache/mod_wsgi and I've noticed that 
whenever I restart the server after making a code change it takes a very 
long time (like a minute) before the script is active again.  In other 
words, I do an apachectl restart, reload the page in my browser, and one 
minute later it finally comes up.  During this time CPU usage is 
essentially zero.  Loading all the code manually into a python 
interpreter is virtually instantaneous, and all subsequence interactions 
with the app are very fast.

Does anyone have any ideas what might be going on or how to debug this?
