Hi Kenneth,

Most probably i am to blame here, but i'll try to explain (and translate
at the same time ;-))

Using 2.1.12 i decided to set the option altnamespace.

This caused no problem and all scripts were working and were placed in

When is upgraded to 2.1.13 suddenly the scripts were expected in
/usr/sieve/?/virt^user^name ...

After renaming the dirs to this 'style' all scripts are working again.

Probably i am to blame here, but hey i use Cyrus for a month now ;-)
BUT... a lot of people are starting to use cyrus because of the ease of
web-cyradm and its how-to and might get similar problems ?

I am not sure what is the real cause, i'd rather leave that to the
experts, but i thought i should mention it ...

Best regards, Bob
