Hmm. Usually that should happen only if index files are corrupted. But I
don't think you've had any time to corrupt them yet :) You could try
anyway rm -rf ~/mail/.imap/

I'll anyway look more closely how that could happen and maybe fix it
with index rebuilding rather than dying, but could you get the backtrace
of that? It probably doesn't core dump, but you could try it manually:

gdb /usr/lib/dovecot/imap

x select inbox
x fetch 1:* body


Probably crashes with that.

Might also be some weird email message that Dovecot doesn't like..
