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

I have a a MURDER setup and I notice that if the frontends are getting any type
of mail load that sendmail takes over 30 seconds to send a small message
(sometimes over a minute). So I've picked a few "stuck" sendmails and strace'd
 The strace just sits at the following:

Process 9991 attached - interrupt to quit
connect(6, {sa_family=AF_FILE, path="/var/lib/imap/socket/socketmap"}, 110

So it looks like my entire bottleneck has to do with socketmap somehow. Is there
anyway I can speed things up? Thanks.
