I hope I got the list to post this question to right, please excuse me
if I didn't..

I resently upgraded a cyrus-imap from version 2.4 to 3.0 and since then
my sieve admin account is not an admin anymore:

sieveshell -u admin -a admin => works
sieveshell -u user -a user => works
sieveshell -u user -a admin => 'PLAIN authentication failure'

The account is configured admin in imapd.conf:

sieve_admins: admin

Since this account is used to enable / disable scheduled vaccation
messages it creates some problems.. any help would be appreciated.
