imap doesn't read configuration file at all, it expects all it's
configuration to be in environment variables. I've in TODO to make
"dovecot --exec-mail imap" or something like work, which would just read
the config and execute imap process.
For now you could set the config manually, such as MBOX_LOCKS=fcntl. The
environments are only listed in src/master/mail-process.c

Does it try to use SSL? Probably not.. hmm. It needs a restart to get
working again? Some people have said that they need to restart dovecot
once in a while or it stops responding. I haven't really figured that
out yet. What does ls -l /proc/dovecot-pid/fd/ show then?
