I've just started using Dovecot, and can't seem to get the LDA to work.

I get the  following error:
Mar  4 00:47:19 thebighonker dovecot: lda(ler): Error: user ler:
Initialization failed: namespace configuration error: Duplicate namespace
prefix: ""
Mar  4 00:47:19 thebighonker dovecot: lda(ler): Fatal: Invalid user
settings. Refer to server log for more information.

T=address_file_dovecot defer (0): Child process of address_file_dovecot
transport returned 75 (could mean temporary error) from command:

dovecot -n attached.

the invocation from my exim config for other than inbox:

  driver = pipe

  # Use /usr/lib/dovecot/dovecot-lda  if using Debian's package.
  # You may or may not want to add -d $local_part@$domain depending on if
you ne
ed a userdb lookup done.
  command = /usr/local/libexec/dovecot/dovecot-lda -f $sender_address -m

  message_prefix =
  message_suffix =
  #group = mail
  #mode = 0660
  temp_errors = 64 : 69 : 70: 71 : 72 : 73 : 74 : 75 : 78

What am I doing wrong?
