Default Recent problems with Postfix

I've been having a problem that's been a bit perplexing to me. Over
the last few weeks, it seems that postfix-policyd-weight and postgrey
have not been processing messages, even though I should have postfix
set up properly to do so. As such, I've seen a marked increase in spam
that's getting through. I'll be happy to answer any questions and
provide as much information as I can to get this problem resolved. The
only thing I can think of is a few months ago I upgraded postfix,
first from 2.5.1_2 to 2.5.4,1 (Aug 22nd) then to 2.5.5,1 (Oct 6th). I
also updated postgrey from 1.31 to 1.32 on Aug 26th. I have not
updated postfix-policyd-weight (no updates available since installed
in April). I'm using FreeBSD. There have been no other changes that
I'm aware of. I've rolled back Postfix to 2.5.1_2 and postgrey to 1.31
(both versions were known to work) and it still appears that it wasn't
working. Below are a few bits of (hopefully) important information:

uname -r

smtpd_recipient_restrictions =
reject_rbl_client list.dsbl.org,
reject_rbl_client sbl.spamhaus.org,
reject_rbl_client cbl.abuseat.org,
reject_rbl_client dul.dnsbl.sorbs.net,
check_policy_service inet:,
check_policy_service inet:,

From what I can tell the RBL lookups are not taking place either. The
prior reject_* rules appear to be working:

Oct 25 02:54:13 fb1 postfix/smtpd[1862]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from
ip-88-199-176-164.tczew.net.pl[]: 504 5.5.2
<xyz-2sggsf7qwk1>: Helo command rejected: need fully-qualified
hostname; from=<fsdxtxi@bos.mcd.mot.com> to=<<email removed>>
proto=ESMTP helo=<xyz-2sggsf7qwk1>

I'm completely baffled by this. I can verify that the proper services
are running on their respective ports:
postgrey perl5.8.8 698 5 tcp4 *:*
polw perl5.8.8 758 4 tcp4 *:*

Any help would be grealy appreciated. Let me know if you need any more
details/configuration information. Thanks for any help you can provide.
I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by fleeing the scene of the accident!
