The login process parents the session and dies at the end of the session.

Seamonkey creates multiple sessions

I think it is working as designed.
I see three logins, connect via thunderbird create a fourth, when I kill
thunderbird, one of the original three dies.
Some servers have issues with how Mozilla works with multiple connections, but
I don't think it is an issue for dovecot, and really shouldn't be an issue
for any IMAP server.
