Thanks to the advise above and I believe I got it working now.

One more thing though, if replication is involved, it appears one  
needs one log for squatter and another for replication, am I correct?  
I got replication to work only after I added another log, like,

sync_log_channels: squatter replog
syncclient       cmd="/usr/local/cyrus/sbin/sync_client -r -n replog"

Not sure if this is mentioned in the docs somewhere.
