I made some investigation and I found Roundcube perform a
GETMETADATA "*" (/private/vendor/kolab/folder-type)
to list all special folders.
In cmd-getmetadata.c there is a "if" (line 455) who is intended, I think, to
avoid the use of wildcards in mailbox name, but at the end the result is an
attempt to open a NULL mailbox name who produce the crash.
When I remove this condition and recompile dovecot, there are no crashes.
It's not clear for me if GETMETADATA "*" is still legal (there is a reference
to rfc 5464 in the code) ; but in both cases there is a bug in the code.
