Turn on debugging in qmail-scanner.  I believe you may find an answer there.  That's the process that seems to be "hanging".  I believe if you open you'll find a line that starts with DEBUG and it's probably set to zero.  Set it to one and you'll get more information in /var/spool/qmail-scanner (I think that's it .. been a while).
Unless you're using some specific function of qmail-scanner that Simscan doesn't have, I would strongly recommend switching over to Simscan.  It really reduced my server load and is much faster.
PS:  Got your private email.  Will respond later.  :)

Subject: Re: [vchkpw] Qmail keeps failing!

Hello everyone,
Here is the update on this crazy server issue which is leaning closer and closer to a case of SFA (stupid flippn' administrator).
My server appears to be running daemontools ok. I need to investigate daemontools more closely over the course of the day, but daemontools truly does not seem to be contributing to the problem or the solution (from what I can see).
I can find no reference to this /env/CONCURRENCY directory on this system at all!
Correct me if I am wrong,
1 My CONCURRENCIES are max-ing out and raising the limit is not the solution.
2 Qmail, VPopmail, and QMail scanner are respawning
3 Each spawn will eat a few CONCURRENCIES?
4 Editing evn variables won't prevent the respawning?
So it would appear that this knucklehead administrator has to find out why this thing is respawning all the time and that should solve the core issue of this "qmail keeps failing" issue.
