So, to be sure: the webmail server is running on the same box as the one running Dovecot?

I tended to believe that usually, a webmail application tends to open/close connections sequentially, or to consecutively select relevant mailboxes within a single connection. But who knows...
Which webmail app have you installed?

When connecting to/making use of the webmail, you should at least see connect/disconnect entries written in Dovecot's log.
Do they tend to overlap?
