Dear NetBSDers,
   In CYRUX's IMAP FAQ I find:

Q: Under NetBSD, when deliver runs, it delivers a message and unless I run
reconstruct after every message, messages are constantantly overwritten.
(Or other weirdness.) 

    A: NetBSD's mmap doesn't get along well with Cyrus due to the
interactions between mmap and write but the configure test isn't smart
enough to figure this out. Change map_@WITH_MAP@ to map_nomap in
lib/ in the distribution and recompile. This incurs a
performance penalty but it works. 

It appears that this version is as of Aug-98.  Have the problems with 
mmap and write been fixed in 1.4 or earlier?  Anyone using this IMAP
server with NetBSD?
