Anyone can explain please??? If I use the command lsof...

master    1652    root   71u  unix 0xf793c080       1918
master    1652    root   74u  unix 0xf7941080       1922 private/cyrus
master    2792   cyrus    5u  unix 0xc3ab7a80      16864 socket
master    2792   cyrus   22u  unix 0xf3ebe080      16888

it really necessary that third line and fourth point to same location?
If answer is yes... how?

Thanks in advance...

  And without PAM it's one less layer to debug.  And you will be
debugging.  Cyrus IMAP and SASL are great, but they are not simple.
As always, Occam's Razor is a handy tool.  If you don't have a clear
for PAM integration with SASL, eliminate it.

  Good luck.
