[Dovecot] v1.0 plans, rc11 tomorrow

I dont know about any ldap-auth memory leak, but I still havent seen any
responses about the issue myself and Matheus Antonio Oliveira have
reported about ldap authentications against Active Directory using
auth_bind. Any chance this could be looked at before the v1.0 release is
finalised ?

This is causing us ever growing pain as all it takes is a single user to
type their password wrongly and it locks out dovecot preventing anyone
else from logging in until the service is restarted. I currently have a
cron job checking dovecot every minute and restarting when necessary.

Last post on the issue:

Many thanks,
Rob Coward
