Hammer & Screwdriver Load above normal, qmail, bogofilter, increase CPU?


on my VPS load is above normal. It is around 2.00 all the time.
But VPS has assigned:
1000 CPU units, one core.

Does it mean VPS needs faster CPU, or can balance high load any other way?

The load is 70% used by process: bogofilter

the maillog file is full of:
vps qmail: 1383152935.943223 delivery 420078: deferral: Uh-oh:_.qmail_has_prog_delivery_but_has_x_bit_set._(#4.7.0)/

some of my .qmail files have execution permissions. when i removed it by chmod -x file

it stopped say this, but instead:
vps qmail: 1383153288.190979 delivery 421273: deferral: maildrop:_Unable_to_open_mailbox./
