Attachments Stopped Working

Hello, I had this posted on the temporary Area51 boards but couldn't locate it, so here is a re-post. About Feb 2 attachments stopped working. Any file type. If you go to attach a file to a post you get the progress bar box and the posting screen sits there like it's waiting, indefinitely.

Looking in the shell via ps ux I can see the php5.cgi call running. It will continue to run until I kill it manually via shell. The attached file does end up (complete) in my upload folder, and I am able to download and view it properly over FTP.

I have never had this problem before. Things were working great for nearly 2 years and then it randomly broke. I have verified (vehemently) with my host, that no edits have been made to the server I am on, and they wrote a small script to accept uploaded files via PHP just to prove it to me.

A_Jelly_Doughnut had me run a SQL query over @ Area51 to find the last attachment that worked -- and I found it, and it is in a thread and post and viewable just fine. This was the last troubleshooting. Any help would be much appreciated, as I am very much at a loss of what to do right now :(.
