I've been trying to think of configuration changes that may have contributed to my current predicament... The only thing I can think of beyond the modifications of the main.cf that I posted is that I changed the ban time on fail2ban to be -1. This has resulted in a lot of banned ip addresses at a given time, but they are all legitimate bans (i.e. spammers and brute force attacks). Would the sheer number of banned ip addresses mess with anything? I rather enjoy having these all permanently banned because it has been a significant difference, but I don't want it to be at the expense of other functionality.
