What was the previous version of dovecot and what the new version?

I use dovecot-2.3.1 and there is a new version in ports tree 2.3.1_1 which I haven't upgrade yet.

Do you see this error only on your screen or it shows it in logs too? I want to try to reproduce this error and need to know if I need KVM connected to the server.

/var/run/dovecot/dovecot.conf is a link to /usr/local/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf

Do you have chroot for dovecot? Maybe /var/run/dovecot is not mounted yet when dovecot starts and this is the reason for this message.
