There is a quota on 'user.simix'. No other quota on subfolders.

Well, that's what I was wondering about. At least I was able to catch an
strace now which is attached.

No, my imapd.conf:
configdirectory: /var/lib/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
admins: cyrus
sievedir: /var/lib/imap/sieve
sendmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
hashimapspool: true
sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
sasl_mech_list: PLAIN
tls_cert_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_key_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_ca_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt

Is it even possible with stripped binaries or do I have to rebuild?

I wanted to note that the crash does not happen always. Even on the same
folder, sometimes it crashes, sometimes not.
