Problem with Cyrus imapd ( lmtpd ? )

I have installed the following software on a Solaris 9 machine:
I use Sendmail 8.12.6 for SMTP transfers.
I'm having the following problem:
When a user tries to transfer a mailbox from his local machine to the
imap server via imap,
the process hangs after about 6000 messages transferred.
There seems to be no apparent reason, the mailbox itself opens up fine
I ran into the same problem while transferring another users mailbox
I'm using lmtpd and a socket to communicate between it and sendmail.
For some time everything *seems* to be OK, imap still works and
delivery takes place, but the frozen
session is still frozen. Then all of a sudden delivery stops with
"Deferred: Connection refused by localhost"
I'm just using shadow for authentication, and I have checked the
binaries and libraries, and they _are_ linked against
the Berkeley DB. There isn't even any other /usr/lib/libdb*.so*
Could anyone guess what might be killing my server ? I have now only 14
days before I'm supposed to move 13 thousand users
to it, and I'd rather not having it crash on a whim :-)
