Ah, sorry for taking your time on an old bug.  For most of my servers, I
try to use the RHEL/CentOS-provided packages where practical (because
with over 100 servers running a wide variety of services, building
everything from source takes more hours than I have in a day).  The
hazzard of course is chasing already-fixed bugs from time to time.

I also understand Red Hat's "stability" approach, where they tend to
stick with a given upstream version and just patch it; few Open Source
software developers have the time to maintain bugfix-only branches for
the lifetime of a RHEL major version, and new features tend to mean new
bugs as well.

Thanks for taking the time to point out the fix.  I was hoping to have
time this weekend to try the latest Dovecot release, but hadn't yet done
that.  I have opened a Red Hat bug to try to get this patch applied.
