Thank you - Dovecot did mysteriously stop may be 2 other times over the past 2
years or so. Never anything I noticed in /var/log/messages...
Would it help if I set mail_executable
= /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/gdbhelper /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/imap,
should this happen again? I suppose I could expect a lot of spece needed
for /tmp/gdbhelper.* files if this doesn't happen for another 6 months...
