Well, I'm pretty sure it IS dying. I've seen ${configdir}/proc being 
filled up with dead process files. I've made a cleanup procedure, but 
only as a remedy. See below.

I have found how to avoid this, if not the cause for it. If we go to 
Tools -> Accounts -> "Our IMAP account" and DESELECT "Include this 
account when receiving or synchronizing", all is well. If it is 
selected, Cyrus gets killed sometimes 100 times/hour from one account.

I'm glad that I have found a general remedy, but the matter is still 
open for investigation. I'll keep you posted.
