Cyrus POP3 Deadlocks in 2.1.16

Actually the deadlock seems to be pretty independent of the version because
we had this happening back in 2.0 in a redhat system. I can't find a
trigger or any reason for it, POP3 just *STOPS* dead int eh water.
Stopping all cyrus and restarting never helps, only way to get POP3 back is
to reboot. When it happens POP3 gets your a connection, but will NEVER
banner, all other services are normal, no log entries indicate illness,
Has anyone else EVER had this happen? This is *VERY* disconcerting. It
hasn't happened much but it's been fairly OS and version independent
happening on our old RedHat system, and now (just moments ago) on our
Debian based system.
I can't figure out anything that it could be, happens in MURDER and
non-MURDER configurations. Like I said though only to the POP services,
IMAP is always fine during these problems.
Any ideas, anyone?
