> How large is your auth process's VSZ when it starts up and has handled a couple of logins? It's possible that it's not leaking at all, you're just not giving enough memory for its normal operation. Some Linux distros nowadays build binaries that eat up a lot of VSZ immediately when they start up.
ps aux report this:

dovecot   7454  0.0  0.0  85980  3776 ?        S    09:36   0:00 

before restarting dovecot the auth process was running since about 1 
hour and this is the output from ps aux

dovecot  25002  0.0  0.0  86112  3780 ?        S    08:24   0:00
