I also recently upgraded from rc10 to rc15, and found the same errors in my log files. I also had some issues with the authentication at the same time. I don't know if they are related to the cache, but the first login attempt I did was with an incorrect password, after this even using the correct password it wouldn't allow me to login until I restarted Dovecot. I'm not an expert with regards to the algorythims of the caching engine.. So this might be normal. I thought that it would have only cached successful authenticated sessions.

Subject: [Dovecot] problem in rc15 (proxy mode)

I have test dovecot on one of my pop3/imap proxies (from rc10 to rc15). 
I immediately get a lot of error messages like this one :

Nov 27 15:10:45 mproxy1 dovecot: pop3-login: file client.c: line 423 (client_unref): assertion failed: (client->destroyed) Nov 27 15:10:45 mproxy1 dovecot: child 21677 (login) killed with signal 6

A lot means one every 2 or 3 seconds.
Any suggestion ?

protocols = pop3 imap
disable_plaintext_auth = no
ssl_disable = yes
login_process_size = 64
login_process_per_connection = no
login_processes_count = 8
login_max_connections = 256
login_greeting = loktar
auth_cache_size = 16384
auth_cache_ttl = 1800
auth_worker_max_count = 30
auth default {
  mechanisms = plain
  # Userdb settings are not used with proxy but there need to be something.
  userdb static {
    args = static uid=5000 gid=5000 home=/dev/null
  passdb sql {
    args = /etc/dovecot-mysql.conf
  user = root
  count = 1
