Right. Well, sort of. That lock persists for minutes, certainly longer
than 30 seconds. Unless the client realizes that it has been cut off
and retries again and again and thus keeps the lock active basically
all the time.
Alas, if it was dovecot which did cut the connection, shouldn't
it have also released the lock at the same time? Or was/is that
shortcoming part of the bug?
