You are running out of space in one of the Berkeley DB memory regions 
(cache logging, locking or transactions). Check 
http://www.sleepycat.com/docs/ref/debug/runtime.html to see how to get 
more debug info out of the berkeley system.

What do db_stat -c -h /mail/imap/db and db_stat -m -h /mail/imap/db say 
when you run 'out of space'?
