i am unable to authenticate when i try to connect to localhost.

sieveshell -a gulkhan localhost
connecting to localhost
Please enter your password:
unable to connect to server at ./sieveshell line 174, <STDIN> line 1.

my logs:
May 15 10:15:18 [timsieved] attempting server step after doneflag
May 15 10:15:18 [timsieved] badlogin: localhost[] CRAM-MD5 
generic failure

help would be appreciated. i can authenticate to the imapd both from an 
imap client and using imtest.
