Hm. that is odd.  If you can catch it in the act, what's the output of
"ps axl | sed -n -e 1p -e /mysqld/p" when this happens?  I'm interested
in the WCHAN column.  A thread truly waiting on I/O will probably be in
the "biord" state.  There might be something else causing that thread
to slow down (I've never used a FreeBSD system with more than 1GB of
RAM).
