If this happens consistently, I think there's something wrong in your  
system. What OS are you using, and do you use some weird kernel  

The 17193 should be the process ID of the pop3-login process. I'm  
guessing it's not. You could add pid=%p to login_log_format_elements  
to see if this is the case.

I've heard earlier also that some kernels make fork() return a  
different PID than what the child process's getpid() function  
returns. Dovecot really doesn't like that.
