Today I got past this problem, I figured I would share.  Unfortunately I 
don't know what the exact cause.

This mail server has been running on Ubuntu Hardy this whole time.  
Today I looked at Intrepid's repositories and saw that it has Dovecot 
1.1.4.  I upgraded Dovecot and its dependencies from the Intrepid 
repositories and this problem disappeared with no extra effort needed.

Hopefully this helps someone,
