[Dovecot] Stale imap processes

I'm new to the list, but I noticed a buildup of stale imap processes
after upgrading to 1.0rc2. My IMAP server actually ran over maxpipekva,
and I had to reboot it. I got to spend some time learning about
kern.ipc.maxpipekva in the process of troubleshooting.
I'm running FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p3, and I have a small home office LAN
setup. 2 XP client PC's, one which uses primarily Thunderbird 18.104.22.168,
one which uses primarily Outlook Express. I had been running with SSL
under Thunderbird (only), but disabled that in hopes of fixing the
problem. It appears not to have helped.
I am using the FreeBSD dovecot port, currently at rc2, with default
settings. I use the default authentication scheme, and Maildir storage
(my MTA is Postfix). I am running a number of other daemons on this
machine but mail is its main function.
I am interested in helping to solve this problem; is there anything I
can do to help?
