Default System.Web.HttpException: Request timed out

I'm suddenly getting these errors at seemingly random intervals. If the user hits back and resubmits, it then works.

I've read that setting the executionTimeout in the httpRuntime section of web.config "fixes" it, but all that appears to me to do is increase the wait time before the error recurs. The better solution, it seems to me, is to fix whatever is causing it, but I cannot find an explanation anywhere of what I should be looking for. My understanding is that the page being called is not loading and I therefore cannot trap for it in code or even write a trace to a log file to reduce the scope to a single line of code. If that is true, how can I find the root of the problem?
