Multiple Navigation Nodes Problem and Navigation Deadlock in SharePoint 2010

Symtoms:
Issue happens after  August 2012 CU installed for SharePoint Server 2010.

After publishing a new page the site load times start to increase dramatically or page requests don’t finish loading at all. You will see the infamous “An expected error has occurred“-error or if the callstack is enabled and custom errors are turned off in the web.config (CallStack=”true” / customErrors mode=”Off”) you will see a “Request timed out.” error-message.

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Transaction (Process ID 76) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction. at System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection.OnError(SqlException exception, Boolean breakConnection)
