vpopmail auth works for some people, so it's not completely broken. It's
possible that 1.0beta does something differently than 0.99.x which
breaks it for you.

But I don't know what I could do for this in Dovecot's side. It clearly
happens in vpopmail's side, so it would require debugging vpopmail code
as well.

Wouldn't it also work if you just made Dovecot directly authenticate
with mysql, and just changed the SQL queries so that they would be
compatible with vpopmail's database?
