Users of Debian who aren't skilled will never try agian to report a bug if the bug reporting utility does not work as it happened to be the case too many times within the last year. Yes the CL version can be used as a fall back. But it's not as easy as the gtk version. And although I am not a beginner I think twice before switching back from the gtk versions to the CL version as it involves editing the rc file manually. A beginner wouldn't even know how to switch back).

this is likely due to dovecot having a bug script requesting user
input or not  completing successfully.

Surprisingly, sarcasm and pretentiousness doesn't help to fix bugs.

It is a bug, you've reported (thanks for that), it will be fixed; stop
acting like it's the biggest problem of the world (you can use the
text ui).
