So I have 616 "imap" processes and 14 imap-login processes.
Each of the 14 handles up to 32 auth requests.
And if I get this right, NEW imap-login processes are spawned
automatically when the need arises. Correct?

So I'm well below my limit of 128 imap-login processes.
Or do I have to count other *-login processes as well?
