[Dovecot] Solaris/SSLonly/Lots of Users

Anyone running Dovecot on Solaris, requiring only SSL connections, and
servicing thousands of simultaneous users?  Our past attempts to do so
have failed due to dovecot-auth using up all 256 of its file descriptors.
I say 256 since we are limited to that by the 32-bit libraries.
We are looking at either compiling Dovecot in 64-bit and letting dovecot-auth
file descriptors accumulate (not ideal), or providing Timo with access to
one of our test servers so he can debug the problem.  However, I would
like to hear of anyone in the same boat first.  Thanks!
