When does that happen? In telnet session? It should at least give
'+OK' or '+ERR' before quitting the session.

That's so far correct.

Why does it seem to do so? You're getting the correct "virtual home"
set and the command past password check is executed, so why do you
assume it doesn't pass the check?

Yes. My question about "was is the startup script" wasn't meant to you
telling me it's name, but rather telling us it's content.
Your vchkpw seems to do everything well, so there must be a reason why
qmail-pop3d fails to propagate the state of users mailbox / maildir.

Your best bet is

1.) Pasting the content of your POP3-startup script in your next reply
2.) Test running the startup script "on the shell".
    Do a 'svc -d /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-POP3d/'
    than 'cd /var/qmail/supervise/qmail-POP3d/; ./run' on command
    line / interactive shell.
    Make another telnet session or try to fetch mail using your MUA
    and see if there are any error messages put out on the command
