Description Nicolas Mailhot 2007-08-24 16:07:16 EDT
Upgrade to dovecot-1.1-16.1.alpha3.fc8.x86_64 results in a flood of error
messages in maillogs. Mail clients misbehave and hide old messages. Reverting to 
dovecot-1.0.2-13.5.fc8.x86_64 fixes the problem

Comment 1 Tomas Janousek 2007-08-28 09:40:47 EDT
Timo suggested using mailbox_list_index_disable=yes until he fixes the problems
with mailbox list index at http://dovecot.org/list/dovecot/2007-August/024828.html .

Other than that, I suppose Timo will look at your message about this bug, so
I'll leave this up to him.
Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-08-28 18:01:48 EDT
The workaround seems to work, de-escalting to F8Target for now
Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-08-31 02:18:30 EDT
unfortunaly, I was wrong, the workaround does *not* work

It seems the no-index setting is not 100% respected by dovecot, it still
regenerates the index after a while and once it's on-disk the problems restart
(BTW even if it worked it would be no real solution for fedora since even if it
worked dovecot will use indexes if present so you need to manually remove
indexes in user dirs in addition to setting no-index for the update to work… for
a while)

Comment 5 Timo Sirainen 2007-09-08 23:17:10 EDT
No, mailbox_list_index_disable=yes should completely disable dovecot.list.index*
file usage and creation.. I can't think of a way why it wouldn't work 100%.
Comment 6 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-09-09 03:33:09 EDT
All I can say is I did use this parameter, and the indexes were re-created after
a while regardless, and then all hell broke loose
Comment 7 Tomas Janousek 2007-09-25 09:35:10 EDT
I downgraded to 1.0.5, since stable enough a version isn't out yet and it's the
freeze date today.
1:1.0.5-1 should be in rawhide soon.
Comment 8 Nicolas Mailhot 2007-09-27 16:00:18 EDT
After a few days of testing this one seems more solid ; even if I did get some
imap-login segfaults when accessing imap tls dovecot through squirelmail (but
login again works and unlike the index problem no message is hidden from the
user when it should not be, so it's more an annoyance than a blocker)
