Oops, sorry, you're using v1.0.rc15 which doesn't have this setting.
In that case I don't really know why it's failing. Look at /proc/
`pidof dovecot-auth`/fd/. Where are all the file descriptors going?
In any case I'd suggest upgrading to a newer version (from
backports.org). That alone might fix the problem.
