This seems relevant to your problem:

HEAD had this problem fixed in rev 1.28, dated 2008/03/15.
RELENG_7 had this problem fixed in rev, dated 2008/04/26.

Here's the proper file in cvsweb so you can see it yourself:

Have you tried re-enabling mmap in dovecot on a system with a kernel
build after those dates?  If so, does it still randomly segfault?  If
so, have you reported this to pjd@?  :-)
