cyrus-2.2-cvs: virtualdomains and sendmail virtusertable (cyrusv2 as local mailer)

after changing the local mailer in my from cyrus to cyrusv2 
I cannot get sendmail to correctly deliver the domain-part of 
local-adresses to cyrusv2-lmtpd! Before, I had the cyrusv2-mailer set in 
/etc/mail/mailertable but that way , I was not able to route my email as 
I need to and as I do in /etc/mail/virtusertable. Ecspacially 
catchall-accounts for domains which have more than one email-account in 
cyrus are not possible with the mailertable approach.

I have all my local domains in /etc/mail/local-host-names and do (want 
to do) all email routing in /etc/mail/virtusertable like before.

If I specify a final recipient (cyrus-account) in virtusertable as:	account at

where an account like user/account at exists, sendmail 
recognizes in /etc/mail/local-host-names as a local 
domain and will strip the original from the recipient 
replacing it with the localhost hostname. All domains defined in 
/etc/mail/local-host-names will be recognized in virtusertable but the 
local delivery will only go to the user at localhostname!

Where can I change sendmail to not do that ? How do I tell sendmail to 
never change the local-domain to the local hostname on succesfully 
recognized /etc/mail/local-host-names domains ?
