Just a quick check, was wondering if anyone is experiencing problems 
mass deleting/purging mails from a folder?

I am on RC19 with the mail_log plugin enabled. Quite often, when a mass 
deletion/purge is attempted, we receive the following message in the 
dovecot logs:

dovecot: Feb 01 11:36:27 Error: IMAP(userid): Sending log messages too 
fast, throttling..

Sometimes this is accompanied by a message like the following and the 
user will be prompted with an error message saying that the connection has 
been abruptly terminated.

dovecot: Feb 01 11:34:41 Error: child 3908 (imap) killed with signal 11

Is anyone experencing similar behaviour?
