It has something to do with IPv6 or multiple aliases of localhost, for if I comment out this line in client_new() like so it runs fine:
//      if (++conf.ip_idx == conf.ips_count)

FYI my /etc/hosts says:	localhost
::1             localhost 
fe80::1%lo0	localhost

Anyway, I was trying to use imaptest to make a reproducible case for you to troubleshoot the "dovecot-uidlist: Duplicate file entry" warnings but with no joy yet.  Do you have any hints as to what I should try next?
