cyrus-imapd 2.2.1 beta - auth problem

Since you're using my beta rpm I have to reply, I guess.

When testing the new beta, I made tests on RedHat 9 and had exactly the
same problem. I didn't test on RedHat 7.2 where at least the 2.2 Alpha rpm
did run when I tested it.
Now I don't know where the problem is because I didn't have time to
investigate since.

What may be important to know is that the package uses the same imapd.conf
file than the 2.1.x packages and maybe there is a new parameter missing
now which is used for 2.2 (I remember I have read something like that in
the update docs)?

I hope you let us know if you found out what was wrong.
