If I have the mail_chroot config parameter set to some dir in the config
file and have the home directories set up with /./ ends in the userdb
file, do I have to create the directory which holds the index/uidlist
files under that chroot dir? Now it seems dovecot can not find the
directory which is outside of the chroot (I thought that dovecot opens
the index files before it chroots).
