Using dovecot-1.0-rc19 (quotas are working good, btw) on Gentoo, I have
a strange problem. On boot, dovecot doesn't start, the init script just
times out. From the command line, it starts instantly without problem.
Also, using a program called 'monit' to make sure processes stay
running and restart them if they stop, if I manually stop dovecot, it
is then unable to start it (calling the init script). Nothing gets
logged. In all cases, it's "/etc/init.d/dovecot start".
The only thing I can think of is that there's some environment variable
required which isn't being set. monit specifically says it unsets
everything except for a basic path before running the start program.
Do any environment variables need to be set in order for dovecot to
