Not a bytecode file?

Hi list,

I'm having some trouble getting sieve to work. I've just installed my 
new machine, cyrus is working flawlessly, but sieve isn't. Nothing is 
filtered, and in the logs I see the following errors:

sieve runtime error for stefan id 
<200408131218.i7DCIFX0012052 at>: Not a bytecode file

I've also seen the following error:

sieve[11492]: can't use home directories

but that seems unrelated (?) and hasn't happened for a while.

Can anyone tell me where to look to solve the two errors above?

I use the following config file:

configdirectory: /var/lib/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
sievedir: /var/lib/sieve
admins: cyrus
allowanonymouslogin: no
autocreatequota: 30000
reject8bit: no
quotawarn: 90
timeout: 30
poptimeout: 10
dracinterval: 0
drachost: localhost
sieveusehomedir: true
sasl_pwcheck_method: auxprop
lmtp_overquota_perm_failure: no
sasl_auto_transition: yes
tls_cert_file: /var/lib/imap/server.pem
tls_key_file: /var/lib/imap/server-key.pem

Any help is appreciated,
