What would cause SSL negotiation to break down between a client and server?

I have observed a client send a "Client Hello" to the server over SSL. Then the server sends an ACK for the "Client Hello" packet. However, the server fails to respond.

Approximately 30 seconds later, the client sends a "Client Hello" to the server via SSLv2. Then the server sends an ACK for the "Client Hello". Then the server sends a "Server Hello" to the client via SSLv3.
