imap is working fine, webmail is working fine, but every 5 minutes I get this email

Code:
imap failed @ Thu Aug  4 00:02:34 2011. A restart was attempted automagically.

Service Check Method:  [tcp connect] 

Failure Reason: TCP Transaction Log: 
<< * OK [CAPABILITY IMAP4rev1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS ID ENABLE STARTTLS AUTH=PLAIN AUTH=LOGIN] Dovecot ready.

It looks like chkservd is unable to login to imap to see that it is working. This happened after the auto upcp on Aug-4-2011. I ran upcp --force, but that did not help.

WHM 11.30.2 (build 1)


Any ideas???

Hi.

It is a long time I have same issue with cpsrvd. I couldn't find any solution up to niow. It seems there is a bug tailwatchd in 11.30 series.

I have restarted exim and this seems to have fixed the problem for now. Lets see if it comes up again.
