Sounds like SpamAssassin being its usually bloated & slow self. Are you 
using the network tests? Does SpamAssassin consulting ORDB.com, which is 
no longer working and so possibly causing a timeout? Are you consulting 
maybe too many BLs. Have you updated recently SpamAssassin?

Have you increased the spamd-timeout value from the default 120s?
