Looks to me more like OpenSSL library bug. The only reason why it could
be Dovecot bug is if Dovecot is causing memory corruption. Could you run
imap-login via valgrind to see if this is the case?

service imap-login {
  executable = /usr/bin/valgrind -q --vgdb=no /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/imap-login
  chroot =

Also have you changed any ssl-related settings in dovecot.conf?
