Said file gets created when you enable a script as default. Don't 
precreate it unless you're putting in a script for all your users in 
advance, and if so put the script there also.

find /usr/local/sieve -print|xargs chown cyrus

and see if that fixes it? I can't look at source right this second but I'm 
guessing the ownership is wrong...
