It didn't help :( the only difference because of the patch is that i
don't get the inactivity error anymor in the logs,
 instead of that I _only_ get the following message:

Nov 19 12:18:10 Info: IMAP(user at domain): Disconnected

For the sake of clarity; this and the previous error happens after being
logged in for quite a while (about 25 minutes) on randomly one of my
five imap mailboxes.
