Sieve not working (Fedora / Cyrus (RPMS)

Been tinkering around with Cyrus now for 4 days, all the mail side of
things seem to be ok, the major fly in the ointment (and in fact the
reason I moved to cyrus) is that sieve doesn't want to seem to work at

I've done a fair bit of googling and hunting around to try and work out
the solution and before I loose the remaining shred of my sanity I
thought it was time to cry for help.

So I installed Cyrus using the RPMS from here

and things seemed to be going well, got everything working and i'm using
fetchmail to collect my mail from various POP accounts and get it onto

The problem is sieve, not matter what I've tried it's not working there
are no directories in the sieve's dir for users I've created, .sieve
files in the users home dir don't work and I seem to be going round in
circles, I think the problem is to do with authentication with Sieve and

# sivtest -u david -a david localhost

gets me

S : "IMPLEMENTATION" "Cyrus timsieved v2.2.3-Invoca-RPM-2.2.3-4"
S: "SIEVE" "fileinto reject envelope vacation imapflags notify subaddress relational regex"
Authentication failed. generic failure
Security strength factor: 0

so any thoughts / help much appreciated
