	According to http://wiki2.dovecot.org/LoginProcess

Since one login process can handle only one connection, the service's 
process_limit setting limits the number of users that can be logging in 
at the same time (defaults to default_process_limit=100).

	I understood this as there can only be up to 100 (or 1000 in my case) 
concurrently trying to log in, but once the user logs, the imap-login 
process ends (starting corresponding imap processes) and another users 
could log in. So there could be more than 100 users connected, but up to 
100 trying to connect. Am I wrong?

	If I am wrong, why in my system there is no imap-login processes (or 
just a few) but a lot of imap?
