i left roundcube running in a browser window for a couple hours and i
saw the same behaviour, it basically ended up consuming all of my swap
and nearly bringing down the whole server.  i ended up restarting cyrus,
 and everything went back to normal.

this is pretty much a showstopper for me, an amd t'bird 1ghz wi half gig
of ram should not have a problem handling this.

and yes, this means i finally resolved the #23 issue.  make sure you
have the correct IMAP prefix in the config file.  (the default for
cyrus-imapd is "INBOX")
