Could you get a gdb backtrace for this? It says "core dumped", so there should be a core file in that user's home directory. Then do:

gdb /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/imap /home/user/core
bt full

There are also a bunch of fixes since beta1, so this crash might have also been fixed. Although I don't specifically remember fixing this one.
