[Dovecot] imap-login: Disconnected: Connection queue full

I'm getting "imap-login: Disconnected: Connection queue full:"
messages like these:

May 16 12:17:26 postamt dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected: Connection queue full: rip=, lip=
May 16 12:17:26 postamt dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected: Connection queue full: rip=, lip=, TLS
May 16 12:18:23 postamt dovecot: imap-login: Disconnected: Connection queue full: rip=, lip=

Should I worry about these messages or are they of informational
character only?

Does it mean that the imap-login encountered more than
"login_max_connections" and thus a new process had to be spawned?

Is there a parameter I should be changing (config below)
