Is that revision pre-rc1 or contained in it?

I've been running beta5 for a while and not been seeing those. The
closest thing I get now is "Error: FETCH for mailbox INBOX UID 4322
failed to read message input: Stale NFS file handle", but that's
obviously not Dovecot's fault.

NFS hiccup sounds pretty plausible :)  They're pretty rare anyway.

Going out of town tomorrow morning. I'll check when I get back. I'm
eager to roll out 2.0rc1 (though beta5 has been completely stable for
me) but didn't think it'd be a good idea right before I got on a plane
