[Dovecot] Trying to modify the source - fopen problems

Hello all,

I don't know if this needs to be sent to a different list or not, if so, 
please let me know.

Anyways, I'm trying to modify the dovecot source a bit, but the problem 
I'm having is that whenever I use "fopen", it always returns NULL.  I've 
tried a variety of things, even fopen("/dev/null", "w") -- because that 
should almost always work.  I'm trying to get it to work in 

Any idea why this might be happening?  Any suggestions as to where to 
put the code instead?  (I'm trying to check the username against some 
information in a file OR pass the username to a process and have it do 
the work)
