In my (autoconverted) config, I have:
service auth {
  unix_listener /var/run/dovecot/auth-client {
    mode = 0666
  user = _exim

Which is the only place auth-client appears.
However, dovecot is unable to start and logs this:
2010-03-24_13:26:41.22996 Fatal: Failed to start listeners
2010-03-24_13:26:42.26488 Error: service(auth): Socket already exists:

Whether I remove the socket or not, the socket is recreated and the
error appears again.

If I remove the aforementioned conf snippet, then dovecot starts just
fine and still creates the socket (but unwriteable from _exim user).
