Usernames without alpha characters

Hi. I've run into problems with usernames like "123" or "1_1".
What seems to be the common thing is that that none of them contains
alphabetic characters. Cyradm creates them just fine (although they
for some reason is created under the "q" directory when using a hashed
spool), and lmtpd delivers to them just fine.
However, logging into those accounts with POP3 or IMAP fails in
mysterious ways. pop3d says
-ERR [AUTH] Invalid user
and imapd says
A0001 LOGIN 1234 foo
A0001 NO Invalid user
* BAD Invalid tag
I don't really understand what's going on here. Have anyone else had
this problem and found a solution they'd be willing to share?
