How to enable Sieve Filter for vacation

Thanks very much.  Getting somewhere now.  But we have modified cyrus
default of 
user.johndoe to user/johndoe, i.e. changed the dot to /

In the logfile we get:
duplicate_mark: <E1BxSC8-0001IL-00 at>
.johndoe+ at .sieve.    1092842175 0

As if it is still expecting mail filesystem to be in the dot notation.

Any idea?
