I am attempting to upgrade a Cyrus Murder from 2.3.12p2 to 2.3.14. The
mupdate and backend servers are happy at 2.3.14, but on the frontends while
I can login successfully, attempting to select a folder fails with messages
May 29 12:13:59 kil-imap-13 master: process 15584 exited, signaled to death by 11
May 29 12:13:59 kil-imap-13 master: service imap pid 15584 in BUSY state: terminated abnormally
This is on Red Hat Linux 5 (2.6.18-128.1.6.el5PAE kernel).
I have not found anything in the Cyrus mailing list archive that looks like
this. A Google search did find a similar problem from just a couple of
weeks ago with a Debian installation which was attributed to "packages
sasl2-bin, libsasl2-2 and libsasl2-modules".
I am using the Red Hat SASL RPMs, version 2.1.22-4 which appears to be the
latest. This has worked so far, so I have not installed SASL from Cyrus
itself. The Cyrus SASL 2.1.23 announcement only talks about a "potential"
buffer overflow which suggests to me that the change there is not relevant
Should I switch to Cyrus SASL?
The mailbox database is skiplist, seen and subscription are flat, and quota
is legacy; others are Berkeley.
