gen_mail_id FAILED

I'm periodically seeing this error in my postfix logs.  It's happening
infrequently - on one server, 30 times out of some 54800 emails
processed today - but just often enough that when it does, I'm getting
complaints about mail delays of 5-10 minutes.

2012-07-24T15:47:00+0000 postfix-gw/lmtp[6793]: 8F0B75BC537:
to=<xxx at>, relay=[]:10024, delay=897,
delays=2/0.01/0/895, dsn=4.5.0, status=deferred (host[] said: 451 4.5.0 Error in processing, id=06398-03,
gen_mail_id FAILED: timed out at (eval 112) line 287, <GEN14> line
143. (in reply to end of DATA command))

Is there some way to log a bit more info about what's causing this issue?

Mysql with innodb tables.
