Are all of your services functional though?
It might just be 'chkservd' that needs restarted. Chkservd is responsible for monitoring the services and ensuring they're up and functional.

Try the following via shell:
service chkservd restart:)

I think I am having similar issues. I have 2 cpanel servers version 11.24+ and am using Dovecot instead of Courier.

Daily i get multiple pop failed notices saying they are unable to connect to port 110.

pop failed @ Sun Dec 28 00:41:02 2008. A restart was attempted automagically.
Service Check Method: [tcp connect]

Failure Reason: Unable to connect to port 110
Its been consistently several times a day from both servers.

Any ideas what to look for and resolve this issue? I have tried restarting pop from WHM as well as chkservd.

Thanks!

I am getting this:

Jan 12 09:59:26 hostname dovecot: Fatal: Time just moved backwards by 35 seconds. This might cause a lot of problems, so I'll just kill myself now. http://wiki.dovecot.org/TimeMovedBackwards
Appears in my case at least that my VPS provider updated the clock and the VPS was ahead - only having this issue so far in 1 place, but not a cPanel issue - so not sure if that helps, but if nothing else and it's your own hardware as root setup a cron maybe to do:

rdate -s rdate.cpanel.net

On a semi-regular basis.
