I have yet to experience this problem with the version from 
the Devel tree. We do 95% of our connections via SSL as well (OpenSSL), 
and I run Fedora Core 1 at home for a personal server configured in the 
same fashion.

Note I am using a dovecot package from the devel tree. That version is: 
dovecot- The package that was reported was 
dovecot-0.99.10-6, which is the "stock" fedora package. We had problems 
with that version too, which is why I stepped up. So far, we've avoided 
any crashes as a result of the update.
