The problem AFAIK is that exim squirts error messages down the SMTP
connection to fetchmail.  fetchmail then goes "bleah"  and quits.  Just
filed a bug against exim stating this.  A quick test via "telnet localhost
25" works fine.

well - it would except that my box can't resolve localhost :(   IP address
work, "gryphon" works, but localhost is no go. strace doesn't even think
it's groking /etc/hosts.  Wierd.
