[Dovecot] wierd ssl-parameters.dat regeneration error

I just had a strange problem with my Dovecot 1.0 installation. After 
about two weeks, it logged these messages:

     dovecot: Error: ssl-build-param: 
     /usr/local/var/lib/dovecot/ssl-parameters.dat) failed: No such 
     file or directory
     dovecot: Error: child 30689 (ssl-build-param) returned error 89

And thereafter, all login attempts resulted in this:

     dovecot: Error: imap-login: read(ssl-parameters.dat) failed: 
     Unexpected EOF
     dovecot: Error: child 19036 (login) returned error 89

Thankfully, deleting the ssl-parameters.dat file 
(/var/run/dovecot/memoryhole.net/login/ssl-parameters.dat) and 
restarting dovecot fixed the problem, but it seems odd to me that 
dovecot expects /usr/local/var/lib/dovecot to exist (because, of 
course, it doesn't). I'm not defining that directory in the config 
file anywhere. Does anyone have any idea what's going on?

I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where 
they're going and hook up with them later.
