This crash looks interesting, but unfortunately the libraries are stripped of debug symbols so I can't really guess why it would crash here. By default Dovecot includes them, so you must have stripped them yourself. Can you get another backtrace with debug symbols enabled?

Or alternatively can you look at what IMAP command Horde sends that crashes Dovecot? http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Debugging/Rawlog shows one way of recording the IMAP traffic.
