I don't know groovy, but considering it pseudocode I don't see any
obvious problem.
Just a couple of questions:
1) do you create the named pipe with mkfifo or within groovy? I'd try
the former if you aren't already.
2) are you hitting the available memory size on your system and/or
starting to fill the swap?

You might answer with an update on stackoverflow, if you so prefer.
