hmm...looking at the diff, I wondered if that was already in my imapd
# rpm -qa|grep cyrus-imap
so far so good
added to imapd.conf
restarted - cyrus-imapd
no complaints - syslog seems happy
telnet localhost imap and logged in as jennifer
ls -l /var/spool/imap/j/user/jennifer/INBOX and other
autocreateinboxfolders are there...(nice feature by the way)
ls -l /var/lib/imap/sieve/ - no j no jennifer ;-(
OK - so I would have to patch source and re-install I guess... ;-(
I may be too lazy to do this and resort to #2 below as it appears that I
have to do some scripting anyway...

Indeed it has helped - it cut to the quick.
