sieve doesn't work

sorry, I've sent an unfinished letter, really sorry :(

    I have debian sarge (stable) installed with cyrus (imapd, pop3,
sieve) 2.1.18 -installed. Everything works fine, except sieve. I have
already delt with cyrus on Freebsd before, I used sieve there so I would
like to put the scripts I already have to this new installation.
I get the following error:

 > $sieveshell --user=<user> --auth=<user> localhost
 > connecting to localhost
 > unable to connect to server at /usr/bin/sieveshell line 174.

That's my imapd.conf:
