My best guess is that the status script is causing the problem.
Try disabling the 'Action status' bit of wmiirc. I'm guessing
that one or more of of date(1), uptime(1), or wmiirc(1) aren't
making the buffer cache. If stopping the status script solves
your problem, try sticking wmiir on a ram disk (it's statically
linked by default), and ideally finding a statically linked
date(1) and uptime(1) to do the same.
