Ok, thanks - but I think that's beyond me right now.  Perhaps I could just suggest it as a "feature" for future releases.  Thanks for all your help!

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.
