When trying to connect to sieve using sieveshell, using the same
userid/passwd that I've verified does work with IMAP, I'm getting the
following in the log file(s):

Dec  9 20:28:24 xxxxxx sieve[28283]: no secret in database
Dec  9 20:28:33 xxxxxx sieve[28304]: no secret in database
Dec  9 20:28:36 xxxxxx sieve[28304]: Password verification failed
Dec  9 20:29:01 xxxxxx sieve[28336]: no secret in database
Dec  9 20:29:03 xxxxxx sieve[28336]: Password verification failed

don't they use the same authentication method(s)?
