In your 'run' script give this a try:

/usr/local/bin/sslserver -v -R -H -l 0 0 995 \
strace -f -s 4096 -o /tmp/ssl-pop3.log \
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup \

Don't let this run when "real" users try to log in, the password will
be in '/tmp/ssl-pop3.log'. Use this only with test accounts, if you
intend to publish the log (or relevant excerpts from it) in this list.
If you don't intend to do this we will probably not be able to help.

Looks like vchkpw is run as root, therefore a pure problem with
permissions is more or less unlikely.

No problem is so formidable that you can't just walk away from it.
