Long Lived imapd processes

Running Cryus IMAP V 2.1.11 on Solaris 7

We have been finding long lived imapd processes on our imap server. Some 
approaching thirty days. A truss of these processes show that they are 
not doing anything except receiving a noop from the client every ten 
minutes or so. This resets the timer which allows the process to remain.

My question is: what if anything do others on this list do about these 
situations? I am concerned about killing imapd processes and what it may 
eventually do to the master process.
