Maybe qpopper is not even being ran.

Configure your xinetd to give more logging; maybe like:
                 log_type        = SYSLOG local4 info
                 log_on_success  = PID HOST EXIT DURATION
                 log_on_failure  = HOST ATTEMPT

Not POP3 related.

What does netstat on your system show?
 netstat --inet -n -c

Maybe watch top(1) to see if qpopper is even started.
