I looked at the patch, and it looked like the code that handled condstore was simply just buggy. It was supposed to have cleared some variables in initialization code, but didn't. (And that's why with Dovecot APIs you can't allocate uninitialized memory, it's always zeroed out. Less work for programmer (me), less potential bugs/security holes.)
