You should disable all of them and test again.

I did.. Nothing happened during that time.

When you do what?

This only happens when I try to login to Squirrelmail. Nothing has been changed ever since the webmail was made available for production use. The behavior is intermittent & hence I'm not able to catch anything in the logfiles.

Why do you claim it is a bug?  Please show proof.

Read the mailing list posting guidelines, increase your log levels,
enable and check database logs, and do not assume it's not a problem
with *your* system instead of a bug.

I've increased log levels both in php as well as httpd including mysql too. Nothing specifically points me to correct direction. Hence I ended up posting this to mailling list.
