[Users] 60 second hangs on incoming messages

Having a weird problem...  I run 2 instances of CM, one on my primary
Linux account and another via "su - userid2". On the main instance,
incoming messages are checked and all seems fine. On the 2nd instance,
when mail arrives, I'm seeing long delays where CM is totally

Testing:  Instance2 offline. Sent test message from instance1. 
"Get" produced:

Network log:

CM hung until 12:40:28 (~60 seconds).  This delay appears to be
multiplied by the number of messages arriving.

I'd been thinking this was due to SA plugin; but unchecking "Enable
SpamAssassin plugin", or unloading SA altogether has no effect on the

CM still hangs for 60 seconds per message.

Any suggestions on where to look for, or what might cause these delays?
