imapd, Roxen and IMHO

Hi *,

  I have been experiencing performance problems when accessing the user
inboxes with IMAP using IMHO on Roxen ever since the imapd_4.5-8 release,
that is from the point where the default mailbox root has been reverted to
$HOME. Today, when one of my user accessed his particularily huge home
directory, the Roxen's pike RSS reached 400MB within 5 minutes and was
growing! The load average reached 3.94 within the same time. Modifying the
sources and setting the default mailbox root to $HOME/mail/ made all the
problems disappear. Therefore I'd like to propose a small change to the
imapd (or rather c-client) source code to read the default mailbox root from
either the environment or from /etc/c-client.cf. If there's a need, I can
write the relevant code, because the problem is really grave IMO and since
there's no upstream solution to that, perhaps doing it just for Debian is
the right way?
