Actually, It turns out that this was not a bug in fetchmail.
Investigation of the errors and the link
http://www.catb.org/~esr/fetchmail/fetchmail-FAQ.html#R6
<http://www.catb.org/%7Eesr/fetchmail/fetchmail-FAQ.html#R6> showed that
the problem was a path-MTU issue which caused the fetchmail to hang.
Problem has now been solved.
