Strange behave of Cyrus server

Hi all,

I have configured Cyrus imapd server on my Linux machine. I have to enhance
the server code, for which I will have to debug it. The problem is: whenever
I start the services, sometimes, I don't get the "Server Ready" message, if
sometimes I get it, then I am not able to login. I get the following error:


. NO Login failed: generic failure


One thing more, When I try to debug the imapd process, then sometimes it is
attached to /usr/sbin/imapd as:


Attaching to program: /usr/sbin/imapd, process 4971


And sometimes it gets attached directly as:


Attaching to process 4957


I can't put the breakpoint on the required functions like cmdloop, cmd_login
etc. in both the cases. I can only do so if the gdb will attach to
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/cyrus-imapd-2.2.3/imap/imapd, in my case.


If any of you is having answers to any of my problem, please please help me.
