That might be your problem, together with something you'll probably find 
hard to believe.
Our setup is more or less the same, Oracle XE together with RT-3.8.2 on 
Ubuntu in a VM running on VMware server 1.0x and also using 1Gb of 
memory and that I have found is a breakpoint in performance. Using only 
786Mb of memory will yield a far more responsive system in the morning, 
especially monday morning, than the 1Gb VM. Our test instance is even 
worse then that. Apaches weekly logrotate, cronjob, will cause Apache to 
not restart. A tell tale sign that your VM has gone to 'sleep' is to ssh 
into it. You'll see terrible connection time whereas if you have been 
using the VM a while it will connect in an instant.

Maybe this helps you narrow it down,
