Did you already try the -v (verbose) option of fetchmail? The
described behaviour usually happens if the connection was unnormally
terminated. fetchmail should report an error message even without -v
(I hope you didn't use the -s flag) but it might give some hints what
I haven't lost my mind -- it's backed up on tape somewhere.
