Correct, the concept was *before* you restarted the daemon, to try and 
capture as much info first. It's hard when you're under the gun and need 
to restore services, but if it happens again I'd suggest scraping the 
system for clues for a few minutes. (ls -laR important dirs like 
/var/run/dovecot, ps -ef, maybe some lsof and lslk action, etc.)
