*Almost*; my several dovecot instances don't all use the same
base_dir, because they got mad and started fighting over who got to
put a dict-server and master.pid file in there, and who got to play
with the login directory (I haven't figured out how to get them all to
share an auth server yet). With this patch, some of my dovecot
instances just won't regenerate the ssl-parameters.dat file (though
they will fail more gracefully, which is nice).
