Well, another way would be to attach gdb directly into dovecot-auth  
while it's still running:

gdb attach `pidof dovecot-auth`
(wait for crash)
bt full
fr 4
p *request

Anyway I should be able to figure out the assert by looking at the  
code too. Just a bit more difficult, since a couple of minutes wasn't  
enough. :)

Only problem with that is that it doesn't know if the user exists or  
not. So depending on how you've set up permissions, it's possible  
that it delivers mails to unknown users as well, creating the  
directories if needed..
