Could a CVE be assigned for the following please?

Dovecot 2.1.11 was released and includes a fix for a crash
condition when the IMAP server was issued a SEARCH command with
multiple KEYWORD parameters.  An authenticated remote user could
use this flaw to crash Dovecot.



Please use CVE-2012-5620 for this issue.

We were discussing this issue too at [1] and think that it does only
affect the current connection, no subsequent (i.e. new) connections
are affected.

What's your opinion wrt this?
