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/Makefile.in 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?
