There seems to be two problems here.

1) Your dovecot is apparently segfaulting because of something Gnus is
doing.  Does it stop doing that if you `M-g' the
"lists.Debian.pkg.CL-Debian" group?  I have a suspicion that dovecot's
QRESYNC support is fragile, but I'm not sure what nnimap can do about
that except blacklist Dovecot from using QRESYNC.  Which kinda sucks.

2) When dovecot shut down the connection, nnimap seemed to open up a new
connection buffer, and starts waiting for the response to the previous
command there.  That's obviously an nnimap bug, and I'll see whether I
can chase that one down, but it's kinda difficult to reproduce...
hm...  perhaps if I use an external TLS connection, I can kill the
external program while it's working.
