FreeBSD Port: courier-imap-2.2.1,1

I have not contacted the developers.  I am not sure this has anything to do 
with MySQL integration.  On a hunch, I downgraded after reading the 
following thread:

The CPU utilization issue was also present on my installation.  While 
trying to query a folder with more than 10 messages in it, utilization for 
that daemon would reach 99% utilization until I shot it down with SIGTERM. 
By downgrading, I was able to kill two birds with one stone.  Both issues 
which occurred under 2.2.1 are absent in 2.1.1.

You will notice that the aforementioned thread references issues in 2.1.0 
and a downgrade to 2.0.  Do you recall what was changed between 2.1.0 and 
2.1.1?  2.1.1 seems quite stable.

I have not tried 2.1.2 or 2.2.0.
