okay. it happened again. this time with just one message in the inbox, ~500k - it had a PDF attached, as well as 3 empty MIME attachments. each time this client has had the pop timeout problem, a message from the same source, with multiple empty attachments (and at least one real attached file)

here are the headers from the latest one (addresses munged to protect the "innocent"). the boundary bits say there's jpegs attached, but when i download the attachments via mail.app, i get empty files (almost empty - 1 byte each)

any ideas?
