Well, they're transcripts of what Dovecot said to Icedove and vice versa. 
Is there some pattern?  Maybe Dovecot sends Icedove a message called "YOU 
WEASEL" and Icedove crashes in response.

But truth be told, I think that this is unrelated to Dovecot.

Can you try adding a new user to your system, and then running Icedove 
with this configuration?

I know it looks like I'm grasping at straws here, but I vaguely remember 
similar Icedove issues and them seeming very strange.  (And what version 
of Icedove?  "dpkg -l icedove" should say.)
