    Hi!

    On all our servers with cPanel, after night update (Release) - dovecot is shutting down.

    Code:
    root@server [~]# /etc/init.d/dovecot start
    
    root@server [~]# tail /var/log/maillog |grep dovecot
    Apr 14 09:41:36 s03dl1 dovecot: Dovecot v1.2.11 starting up (core dumps disabled)
    Apr 14 09:41:36 server dovecot: Fatal: setrlimit(RLIMIT_DATA, 256): Operation not permitted
    Apr 14 09:41:36 server dovecot: child 28322 (auth) returned :confused: (Fatal failure)
    Apr 14 09:41:36 server dovecot: Fatal: Auth process died too early - shutting down
    
    If i'm runing manualy - i have another warning:

    Code:
    root@server [~]# /usr/sbin/dovecot
    Warning: fd limit 100 is lower than what Dovecot can use under full load (more than 612). Either grow the limit or change login_max_processes_count and max_mail_processes settings
    Last died with error (see error log for more information): Auth process died too early - shutting down
    
    Problem temporaly solved after reboot system, but at short time, problem back again. Any idea?

    before:
    Code:
    *       hard    data            200000
    after:
    Code:
    *       hard    data            384000
