FreeBSD - POP3 timeouts

Hello all,

I have serveral servers setup with FreeBSD 8.0.

Each of these servers are running vm-pop3d, which has worked well for many 
years now.

Since installing FreeBSD 8.0, the number of timeouts on port 110 have 
skyrocketed on all the servers.

Some clients connecting (checking thier email) 200 times a day, may be 
seeing as many as 50 timeouts.

Is there any tuning somewhere I have missed?

Each server has about 200 domains on it, and each domain has an average of 5 
pop accounts.
