Like Marcus asked, is it I/O load or CPU load? And if CPU, what process
is using it? What passdb and userdb do you use? If you're not sure if
it's imap process or something else doing it, you could eg. run with
rc15's imap and everything else with rc13, or vice versa.

Anyway I don't see what could have caused anything to work slower..
