we found dovecot down on one of our servers, with this error in the log:
dovecot: 2009-07-14 04:05:04 Warning: SIGHUP received - reloading
dovecot: 2009-07-14 04:05:04 Error: Temporary failure in creating login
processes, slowing down for now
dovecot: 2009-07-14 04:05:04 Fatal: listen(143) failed: Interrupted
we can reproduce this error with this tight loop:
while date ; do kill -HUP $(cat /var/run/dovecot/master.pid) ; sleep 15s
after a while dovecot dies with the above error message.
We are using
# dovecot --version
in particular, Debian package with version "1:1.0.15-2.3" .
This started since yesterday, when we upgraded to the latest Debian
Lenny point release.
The situation is rather problematic, and we'd like to here from you if
there something we can do to fix it; if there's something you'd like us
to do, just ask :)
Thanks in advance,
