[Dovecot] Strange dmesg messages

I'm getting strange messages on my new server with dovecot-1.1rc4 + lda
+ sieve + ldap + postfix + suse10.  This server is in production since
monday, and worked fine until today. The only thing I had changed was
dovecot from 1.1rc3 to 1.1rc4. I already enabled mail_debug, but I got
any erros after that.

Does anyone have any idea of what is happening?
