I've seen it a few times in the past. I moved a large site in the last few days and have been running speed tests. The new server is working well and serving pages in a second or less but some lag seems to occur with Google's Adsense servers and with G+ according to the waterfall charts. It could be an issue with ISPs or, perhaps more likely, with Google's content delivery network as the number of ad networks increases.

I see it occasionally and refreshing the page always produces an ad. Stuff Happens.

How many people refresh just to produce an ad? Not me (except for testing my own site).
It would be interesting to know the percentage of time that this occurs. I try it once, and it happens. Not very reassuring. 5% revenue hit? Seems to me that G would be all over this. A fix here could mean tens of millions of dollars to them.

Thank You! Seriously, this is driving me nuts, but at least I'm not alone.

You are definitely not alone, I even have this problem whist trying to log-in to AdSense!

I've been wondering if G is having problems serving so many requests and I'm finding info that support my guess

I can think of quite a lot of servers holding up page loads. Analytics, Facebook, Doubleclick, 1,001 other ad servers. It's reaching plague proportions.
None of whom have the remotest connection to actual page content.

I don't think it hangs, it just stops the page from loading. All of my internal/external scripts are loaded asynchronously (well, except Adsense) and even they stop loading/or executing. I'm not exactly sure what the hell is going on.

Saw it today (no ad), after reloading the page the ad appeared. gstatic lag?

The Google Publisher Toolbar seems to cause ads not to load every time. I deleted it, not disabled it and the problem went away. Another reason not to use it.

Nope, happens with Safari too. I'm almost sure that Adsense or some other security measure calls window.stop()
