I've seen weird things like this when the server can't get a good
reverse DNS lookup (or sometimes a good forward lookup).  Try adding an
entry for your client into your server's /etc/hosts file ... It's fixed
similar things for me.

Ok,  I got it to work, but only by extending the timeout parameter in my
.fetchmailrc file from 30 seconds to 120 seconds.  This brings up an
intermittent problem I have with slow responses to connections. Some
connections are slow, exceeding the timeout of 30 seconds.  So, I would
guess that this is the root cause.

Slow response to this: ssh localhost

Good response to this: ssh
