The (null) thing is a bug, it should contain the username. Already fixed
in CVS.

But the real problem is that your password isn't in plain-md5 format.
plain-md5 expects a hex or base64 encoded 128bit md5sum. Maybe you're
trying to feed it md5crypt password? Change default_pass_scheme from
dovecot-sql.conf if needed.
