i use qmail and installed it by reading the guide at www.qmailrocks.org
i didint get any errors like that. it works great here with spamassasin and qscan.
maybe there is something wrong with your pop3 script. maybe someone attacks on pop3 port.

i did a clean install via emerge. i think it has something to do with tcpserver or qmail-pop3d/run

# This is to make life easier
SERVICE=pop3

# this is to inherit QMAIL_CONTROLDIR
. /etc/profile <-----might be this

[ -s ${QMAIL_CONTROLDIR}/conf-common ] && source ${QMAIL_CONTROLDIR}/conf-common
[ -s ${QMAIL_CONTROLDIR}/conf-${SERVICE}d ] && source ${QMAIL_CONTROLDIR}/conf-${SERVICE}d
[ -s /var/qmail/bin/config-sanity-check ] && source /var/qmail/bin/config-sanity-check
^----might be this too(it stops on this script)

exec /usr/bin/softlimit ${SOFTLIMIT_OPTS} \
/usr/bin/tcpserver ${TCPSERVER_OPTS} -x /etc/tcp.${SERVICE}.cdb -c ${MAXCONN} \
${TCPSERVER_HOST} ${TCPSERVER_PORT} \
${QMAIL_POP3_PREAUTH} /var/qmail/bin/qmail-popup ${QMAIL_POP3_POP3HOST} \
${QMAIL_POP3_CHECKPASSWORD} ${QMAIL_POP3_POSTAUTH} \
/var/qmail/bin/qmail-pop3d .maildir 2>&1
