Sorry for responding to my own posts.  Neither of the following fix it:

import_environment = HOME USER TZ KRB5CCNAME=/etc/dovecot/krb5.cc
import_environment = KRB5CCNAME=/etc/dovecot/krb5.cc

I am finding it interested that abrt seems to say that environment is
empty/corrupted. I am attaching more backtraces to the Fedora bug

It should be noted that machines with more memory pressure crash more often.

Thank you for any help,
