failed virtual domain delivery via lmtp - any ideas?

Hi friends,

I'm desperately going crazy with this:
I have a virtual CyrusImapd-Postfix-Setup (thanks to Derrick Brashear), but
postfix won't deliver the mail via lmtp to the virtual domain, while the
primary domain works fine:

lmtpunix[8758]: accepted connection
lmtpunix[8758]: lmtp connection preauth'd as postman
lmtpunix[8758]: verify_user(user.ce) failed: Mailbox does not exist
lmtpunix[8756]: accepted connection
lmtpunix[8756]: lmtp connection preauth'd as postman
lmtpunix[8756]: verify_user(user.ce) failed: Mailbox does not exist
master[8811]: about to exec /usr/cyrus/bin/lmtpd

after it did:

postfix/lmtp[8808]: Using LMTP PIPELINING, send buffer size is 4096
postfix/lmtp[8808]: > public/lmtp[public/lmtp]: MAIL FROM:<ce at primary.dom>
postfix/lmtp[8808]: > public/lmtp[public/lmtp]: RCPT TO:<ce at virtual.dom>
postfix/lmtp[8808]: > public/lmtp[public/lmtp]: DATA
postfix/lmtp[8808]: < public/lmtp[public/lmtp]: 250 2.1.0 ok
postfix/lmtp[8808]: < public/lmtp[public/lmtp]: 550-Mailbox unknown.  Either
there is
                         no mailbox associated with this
postfix/lmtp[8808]: < public/lmtp[public/lmtp]: 550-name or you do not have 
                         authorization to see it.
postfix/lmtp[8808]: < public/lmtp[public/lmtp]: 550 5.1.1 User unknown

But there the user exists in imapd, and he has an inbox! It's a multi-DOM
with virtual mailboxes on latest cyrus-imap though.

Below some config-stuff, I'd really appreciate any help.

thank you in advance
