[Dovecot] Icedove (Thunderbird) crashes when reading IMAP messages

This is a Debian lenny/sid installation. Dovecot has been installed on
it for over a year, with no problems. Lately (i.e. the past few
months), if I attempt to read a message, Icedove crashes. It does not
do this when I read a message downloaded from the ISP's POP3 server (not
that I do this very often - almost all my mail goes through Dovecot).
I am now having to read email with KMail, but cannot send from it -
that's another story.
Googling for the past month or so reveals nothing: there seems to be no
bug filed for this, and indeed I think it is an odd communication
problem with dovecot that has not been seen before.
Has anyone any experience with this, or any ideas how I should go about
resolving it? I have not done so (because I don't know how to use the
data, not being a coder), but can run strace and/or valgrind on icedove
if that will help.
Thanks in advance
