*Almost*; my several dovecot instances don't all use the same 
base_dir, because they got mad and started fighting over who got to 
put a dict-server and master.pid file in there, and who got to play 
with the login directory (I haven't figured out how to get them all to 
share an auth server yet). With this patch, some of my dovecot 
instances just won't regenerate the ssl-parameters.dat file (though 
they will fail more gracefully, which is nice).

Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.
