I wonder if you're just running it to frequently? Sounds like it may be 
too much for fetchmail to churn through in 60 seconds, so it fires up 
again before its done.

Is it critical you have fetchmail running once a minute? I'd try once 
every 5 minutes, or wrap the call to fetchmail in something that checks 
if it is already running before running it again.
