Hi Lars...

This morning, before I had a chance to try that, we transitioned sieveshell 
to use PAM.  As soon as we did that, I got it to work fine.  Still, I did 
the grep you suggested against the sleepycat db, and my username came out 
as jarcher at carbon instead of jarcher.  So I am betting that was the problem.

I can now put scripts in place and activate and deactivate them with 

Thanks very much to you and Alberto for your help!
