Comment (by yawning):

 I don't think this is a bug.  There is a upper limit on how many outgoing
 circuits are being constructed at any given time, the majority of the user
 base does not bump into the limit, and for those that do, there is a knob
 that can be used to increase said limit.  And your tor instance is logging
 that it is hitting the limit whenever the delays occur.

        MaxClientCircuitsPending NUM
            Do not allow more than NUM circuits to be pending at a time for
 handling client streams. A circuit is pending if we have begun
 constructing it,
            but it has not yet been completely constructed. (Default: 32)

 There may be a case for having an additional separate limits for
 restricting pending circuits by purpose, but that should probably be a
 separate ticket.
