Dovecot in Fedora 17+ is already fixed. Only Fedora 16 remains.

Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2012-12-04 10:44:42 UTC
dovecot-2.0.21-4.fc16 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 16.

Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2012-12-04 22:52:49 UTC
This is no longer considered a security flaw, but since the update is on its way, I'll let bodhi close this when it's pushed to stable.

Thanks for the quick response on this.
