You then activated the wrong IMAP server. Cyrus-IMAPd has a standalone
daemon master process and isn't (x)inetd controlled.

This is a result of running not Cyrus-IMAPd but a different IMAP server.

The path you show above looks very uncommon. Which OS / release do you
run? Doesn't it ship with a binary version of Cyrus-IMAPd which you
could easily install? Doesn't it have an init script?
