Issue's with socketmap (smmapd) under heavy load?

I did 2 things to try and see if this was ident related. First, I installed an
identd server on each frontend and backend.
That had a huge affect on my pop login times, by the way, although I'm unsure
why (for the better, that is). Unfortunately, once there were at least 100
sendmails going mail delivery still took over 30 seconds per message.
The second thing I tried was out of the sendmail.org faq. I added the
to my .mc file and remade sendmail.cf:
This doesn't seem to have had any affect either. :( All strace's still show
waiting for the socketmap socket. Is there any further debugging I could do
besides an strace that might help point me in the right direction?
