Without digging into the imapd code, the first thought that comes to mind is
that imapd is possibly performing a canon_user call for both your
authentication and authorization identities.
To see, you could authenticate with an authentication mech that does not
support proxy authentication (and does not pass both an authc and authz).
The LOGIN mech does not support proxy auth, but the PLAIN mech does. If
you're seeing two calls with a PLAIN authentication, but only 1 with a
LOGIN authentication, then that may be why.
