I verified the config with "dovecot -n", stopped using the "-c /etc/dovecot.conf", moved the conf file to the appropriate place, re-verified it, and I still can't affect it. I assume the crash is happening post-fork, pre-exec, if there is custom code for launching child processes. Since strace 'fixes' the problem, I'll try to figure it out under gdb, but to be honest, my C debugging skills are very rusty.

It has "master:" prefix so it's pre-exec. But you got a core file earlier, right? You should be able to get a usable gdb backtrace then with "gdb dovecot core".
