cyrus imapd 2.2.10 "disappears" on Solaris 8 host

I just got cyrus imapd 2.2.10 running on a Solaris 8 host. Problem is, the
master process keeps disappearing off the process list. It's not dumping
core. It's not logging any problems. It's just going away.

We need this to run reliably. Can anyone give me any suggestions as to how
to debug the situation?
