Cyrus/Squirrelmail problem

OS X 10.4.2 server running SM 1.4.5, Cyrus Imapd 2.2.12, Cyrus SASL 2.1.18.

We recently migrated to this setup and have had a frustrating SM/Cyrus 
problem since day 1.  Occassionaly a user cannot log into this account 
using SM.  The error message reads '*ERROR: Connection dropped by IMAP 

When I type ps ax at Terminal I see:
3727  ??  U      0:00.83 imapd: localhost [::1] username user.username

I cannot kill it, only rebooting the server takes care of until it 
happens again.  A possible cause of this might be linked to users trying 
to move messages from one folder to another in SM but right now I don't 
have enough info.  We have had no problems with other email clients 
(T-bird, Eudora, Outlook, etc).  Is this a SM issue or a Cyrus issue?
