I have just Dovecot and Postfix, nothing else.

Just changed.
Since the problem was happening with only two mailboxes (I have more
than 60 mailboxes on that account, all of them with at least a
Thunderbird rule an many with more traffic than Postfix list), I
stopped dovecot, deleted all index and other files created by dovecot
and restarted the daemon. I deleted the files a couple of hours ago
and no error showed up, but it's too soon to be happy.

Installed the patch now and restarted dovecot.

Let's see what happens.
