The arguments to dovecot-lda are being seen by preline instead of 
dovecot-lda. You need doubld-quotes around preline's command argument so 
that preline sees it all together:
|/var/qmail/bin/preline -f "/usr/local/libexec/dovecot/dovecot-lda -d 
(all in one line)
Then the -d $EXT@$USER will get passed to dovecot-lda.

Need to fix the wiki. ;)
