crashes you reported. The only two problems left were 1) the "Too many
open files" error, which I'm pretty sure is caused by 2) m.* file sizes
are too small. http://hg.dovecot.org/dovecot-2.0/rev/d1f30e375f40 [1]
should fix 1), but I don't understand the cause of 2), since your config
looked ok. Did you solve it somehow or are your m.* files still too
