i think i've nailed it, now; it's been several days since i saw qpe go 
long-term busy.

based on the strace information i posted earlier, i removed the file 
/home/root/.config/Trolltech/qtmail_account.conf and rebooted the 'phone. 
qtopia recreated the file.

i lost my email settings (they weren't working anyway, because i need 
IMAPS support) and i saw two copies of each of my INBOX text messages (one 
new, one old).  once i'd manually deleted the "new" versions of each 
message things got better, and have stayed that way.
