I try to establish a connection to pop3 or imap ports (i.e. via telnet or cyradm) cyrus goes nuts and spawns child processes in endless manner, trashing logs with this:


tail /var/log/debug.log

Jun  2 23:27:35 free master[43639]: process 49269 exited, status 1

...until I stop the master process.

It seems that when you try to connect with pop3 a child process is spawned as it should, but it dies unexpectedly so a new is spawned. Could it be something as simple as permissions to access the mailbox files?

Rather than relying on log files, try to launch the master manually with the -D flag, it may give you a more verbose output.

I tried both cyrus-imapd23 and 22 with default configurations but it
gives the same problem every time.

I have similar configuration on 6.4-RELEASE without such troubles.

Similar but not the same? Sounds like you should review again your config files, also, the versions of cyrus-imapd on your working installation, is that the same as the new one? Consider posting your configs in next post.
