[Dovecot] Stale imap processes

I'm new to the list, but I noticed a buildup of stale imap processes 
after upgrading to 1.0rc2.  My IMAP server actually ran over maxpipekva, 
and I had to reboot it.  I got to spend some time learning about 
kern.ipc.maxpipekva in the process of troubleshooting.

I'm running FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p3, and I have a small home office LAN 
setup.  2 XP client PC's, one which uses primarily Thunderbird, 
one which uses primarily Outlook Express.  I had been running with SSL 
under Thunderbird (only), but disabled that in hopes of fixing the 
problem.  It appears not to have helped.

I am using the FreeBSD dovecot port, currently at rc2, with default 
settings.  I use the default authentication scheme, and Maildir storage 
(my MTA is Postfix).  I am running a number of other daemons on this 
machine but mail is its main function.

I am interested in helping to solve this problem; is there anything I 
can do to help?
