Today I upgraded my Debian testing server (just personal testing server), 
and one of the updates was dovecot-common and dovecote-imapd. I passed 
through the dovecot.conf file changing things so that I would have similar 
features as before, and everything looked OK.

Now, after restarting, and all, I try to connect the the imap server with 
my user acount, and it passes OK, but when I try to see my INBOX folder 
the conection gets reset, and I have this in the mail.log file:

Aug 11 15:20:53 bugs dovecot: imap-login: Login: martin [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]
Aug 11 15:20:54 bugs dovecot: child 8085 (imap) killed with signal 10

I erased the .imap folder in ~martin/mail/ but with no luck.

What happened, and how can I fix this.
