1. install dovecot
2. configure dict (quota, expire, ...)
3. use it a few days

Actual Results:  
dict is damaged. you have to delete the bdb and restart dovecot. but all informations in the dict are lost.

I'm closing this bug because it is for a pretty old version and there isn't any activity on this bug. Feel free to re-open for the current stable version (1.2.11-r1) or newer. Thanks for understanding.
