No it is not a DB problem, it IS a sieve problem:

Look at this piece of sieve code:

if header  :contains "From" "Muchsel"  {
    addflag "\\Flagged";
    fileinto "INBOX";
    removeflag "\\Flagged";

It is generated by Horde Ingo. lmtpd breaks with "4.3.0 virtual memory 
exhausted". Ok the "removeflag" is worthless because the message is already 
in the INBOX - but it should be silently ignored.

When removing the "removeflag"-Statement, lmtpd will accept the mail
