Good question. For some reason your DNS resolver is not very fast.
It's possible this is because you are attracting a whole lot of traffic,
and it simply can't keep up. More likely is that your DNS server is slow
or otherwise doesn't like you very much. Also possible is that your OS
has threading problems -- which OS are you using?

Which version of Tor is this? The development releases (e.g. Tor have a brand-new different DNS subsystem, so they will
at least have new and different bugs. :)
