Checking in proc, my user has 5 imapd processes right now.

I attached strace to them one at a time, then issued a sigquit.  Each
time the process exited immediately.  The logs show something like:

Oct  4 10:36:50 thetis cyrus/imaps[12021]: fetching user_deny.db entry
for 'stevenkurylo'
Oct  4 10:37:55 thetis cyrus/imaps[12021]: auditlog: traffic

Oct  4 10:37:55 thetis cyrus/master[1325]: service imaps pid 12021 in
BUSY state: terminated abnormally

I haven't had an issue with shut down taking the full 30 seconds.
Seeing a strace and the log files from a pid on a machine exhibiting
this behavoir would be interesting.
