[Dovecot] Dovecot Questions

Hi. I have two questions that don't appear to be answered anywhere:
- Many of my users use a fetchmail ssh tunnel to get their mail.
Typically this looks like
poll 188.8.131.52 with proto imap:
plugin "ssh -2 %h /usr/sbin/imapd" auth ssh;
uw-imapd provides a binary /usr/sbin/imapd that can be used for an
ssh-imap tunnel. I found /usr/lib/dovecot/imap (in Debian) which
might work as a replacement, except that it appears that running
/usr/lib/dovecot/imap doesn't properly read in the configuration
file--for example, it is trying to create dotlocks, but in the
configuration I have flock. Is there any way I can do what I want to
- Dovecot seems to be dying spontaneously in conjunction with
SquirrelMail. Do you have any experience of this? SquirrelMail ends
up reporting that there was no response to the CAPABILITY query. If I
restart Dovecot, everything is fine again. I don't see anything in the
logs to indicate the problem. Any ideas why this might be happening?
Thanks for any pointers...
