Anwering to myself... not really. The problem went away
temporarily. When load goes up again, it comes back.
So my last attempt was to rebuild vpopmail with these 2
more ./configure options:

--enable-file-locking=n --enable-logging=n

It's not the best thing to do, but well, we're moving all data
off from this server to a new server as scheduled earlier. :)
