I have recently set up a cyrus murder with three backends running Cyrus 
Imapd 2.2.12 using Cyrus SASL 2.1.22 running on Debian Linux.  
Everything seems to be working fine but I am getting quite a few of 
these error messages in our imapd.log file on the master/frontend server.

imaps[6644]: PROTERR: end of file reached

Does anyone know if this is cause for concern.  I can see in the source 
where this message is generated, but there is little documentation as to 
what is exactly means.  Any help would be appreciated.
