apparently the following change in dovecot hg

  * New revision (10876:370ee9717a6c) in dovecot Mercurial repository:
    - config: Forgot to add header file.


listen =, 2001:1b10:1000::110:1:1

mail.svr02.mucip.net:~# dovecot -F -c /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf 
doveconf: Warning: Obsolete setting in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf:29:
listen=..:port has been replaced by service { inet_listener { port } }
doveconf: Fatal: Error in configuration file /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf:
duplicate listener: 1:

Is this even possible? That doesn't make sense to me, but Stephan's +29
works fine for me, +30 (with just that change according to changelog)
