Seems it's not that much different (at least in the log file ^^). I
attached the strace as before.

However, you need to know for a proper interpration that in order to
try your patch, instead of the Mandriva RPM, I compiled myself from the
dovecot website source. The version is a bit different and any special
stuff prepared by the package has not been done (I don't know if there
is any actually ^^). This at least explain the differences in some
paths, as well as that not all the same libraries might be called.

Nonetheless, I still have the same error so it must not be that

Hope this can still help ;-)
Thanks !
