[Dovecot] Seeing dovecot crash under rc6, seems to go almost exactly every 2.5 hours...

We're getting the following crash report, but I'm not sure it contains 
anything immediately useful (especially since we're running on a 
minority platform in OS X)... Anyone see where we might be able to 
resolve this? The crash doesn't kill existing imap processes, but 
dovecot/imap-login needs to be restarted.
