stupid problems with virtual domains

Hi folks,

i desperately need some advice after spending some days with this:
i compiled cyrus imap with

./configure --prefix=/srv/cyrus --with-cyrus=/srv/cyrus
--with-cyrus-user=imapd --with-sasl=/srv/sasl2 --with-statedir=/srv/var
--mandir=/usr/local/man --with-snmp=no

(not to interfere with a running distri-rpm) on suse 9.0/i386 patched.
first to note: the master-stuff goes to /usr/cyrus, not to /srv/cyrus, but
that's fine as i found out.
auth is via sasldb2 and doing fine.
the weird thing is its ignorance concerning virtual domains. i manage to
create (and access) inboxes like, at bar but fail to do 'cm at bar.tld' with permission denied. same with me at bar and me at in
the sasldb2, imtest is auth'ing fine for both, but a '. create inbox'
succeeds for me at bar only. i'm not really getting through the debugging and
error-reporting stuff, so i can' tell much more.

i'd appreciate your advice, pls. see my current config below


i tried a couple of things already, besides this, like the defaultdomain,
escaping the dots and so on. in some cases, like with cyradm -u ce at mux.tld i
also get some auth-errors due to the (lack of) binding the server to an
interface, but i consider these as desperate trial-and-error-errors.
