Interesting...  dovecot wouldn't be the first application to assume
that the time is monotonic and get Very Angry if it discovers that
it was wrong (ntpd will normally try to correct the time by very
slightly slowing down/speeding up the system clock for exactly this
reason, and some OSs make you jump through hoops to set the clock
backwards at all), but since dovecot is (very!) actively maintained,
I'd agree that it's a bug that should be fixed.
