--with-ioloop=kqueue (actually, --with-ioloop=best) seems to have solved
the problem for me!  

So I have added --with-ioloop=best to NetBSD's pkgsrc package for dovecot.  

Why isn't --with-ioloop=best the default btw?  I have seen complaints from
(Free|Open)BSD users on this list, they have all used --with-ioloop=kqueue
to solve their problem.
