If you end up with multiple cleanup processes running, they may interfere with each other by generating locks on the directory when they delete files. Try temporarily removing it from the crontab until the load clears. Then add it with a longer interval between runs. You may want to move it to a script with a locking mechanism to ensure only one instance is running. Kill off any multiple instances of the command for now.
