Yes, over the last 7 days it didn't happen on one day, Thanksgiving. I
would probably attribute that to very low load.
On a regular basis ?
Yes. I generally notice it between 6-9AM.
At backup time ?
We are not running backups on this host.
Disk nearly full ?
We have plenty of space left on all partitions.
Some DBERROR in the logs somewhere ?
There were, but not anymore. In troubleshooting the issues we
converted deliver.db to skiplist rather then BDB which eliminated the
errors. They looked like this.

service imapd restart is enough ?
Nope, the box has to be cold booted. Hitting the physical reset button.
