Cyrus imapd dying on me

Hi list!

In the last few days, I'm seeing more and more crashing imapd's, such as:

Jan 26 21:39:55 imhotep /kernel: Jan 26 21:39:55 imhotep /kernel: pid 
1194 (imapd), uid 60: exited on signal 11

Which leaves me with a corrupted mailbox. When I next reconstruct the 
mailbox, everything seems to run smoothly.

Is there anything I can do to prevent these crashes, or anyway I can 
further determine the cause and possibly the remedy ?

Telemetry logs show:

<1075149971<10 UID fetch 1:* (FLAGS)^M
 >1075149971>* 1 FETCH (FLAGS () UID 1)^M
* 3189 FETCH (FLAGS () UID 3189)^M
10 OK Completed (0.094 sec)^M
<1075149971<11 UID fetch 2889:3189 (UID RFC822.SIZE FLAGS 
BODY.PEEK[HEADER.FIELDS (From To Cc Subject Date Message-ID Priority 
X-Priority References Newsgroups In-Reply-To)])^M
and here it stops.

imapd core dumps, leaving me a core in the mailbox:

Simple guidelines to happiness:
Work like you don't need the money,
love like your heart has never been broken and 
dance like no one can see you.
