[Dovecot] odd behavior with Dovecot LDA

Okay, to convince myself that quota handling was working okay with
Dovecot 1.0-rc27 on Solaris 10, I tested sending a message to an
account that was purposely over-quota. The account in question had
a vacation message set up.
For the first test, there was no $HOME/.imap directory at all.
I received the vacation message, but the message which was supposed
to be delivered locally queued in Postfix (temporary failure).
For the second test, I created $HOME/.imap and $HOME/.imap/INBOX
directories with the owner and group set to that of the user (just
to make sure the code handled things the same). Again, I received
the vacation message, but the message which was supposed to be
delivered locally bounced back to me after Dovecot LDA crashed:
<syst0005 at peridot.tc.umn.edu>: Command died with status 139: "/opt/dovecot/libexec/dovecot/deliver -f "$SENDER"". Command output: Segmentation Fault
It appears that Dovecot LDA assumes that if .imap/FOLDERNAME exists
that the index files must also exist.. I wonder what other assumptions
might cause segfaults.
