Dovecot doesn't work that great with multiple groups currently. You  
could always modify the sources to just disable the chdir(). It's not  
that important. Perhaps I should just move it later after the  
privileges are really dropped. I'm not actually sure why it's done  
earlier. The code related to it is pretty huge already.
