[Dovecot] POP3 UIDL

I have installed rc22 and tried it with my mbox-based mail - fine.
Then I converted that mbox to Maildir to see if new feature (saving 
state without QUIT) works -

first run - I get time out. Second run - I get rest of the Maildir 
scanned and get into mailbox. Fine.

# telnet enders2 110

Escape character is '^]'.
+OK Dovecot ready.

where is the list of pop3 uids ?
When I connect to mbox I get something like
84904 d8f096c72c24719bd7d13d78a3694114
84905 9074b40ab4283ec38a151587f34690d9
84906 06a40afeaca43fc76bea2231b13b1a33
84907 cdae771ec2407df89a25321f3792d9e9
84908 9f84415625d77dd3cde7d9441847318e

but with Maildir I get nothing. Doesn't look like proper behavior.

mail_location = maildir:~/Maildir
#mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u

pop3_reuse_xuidl = no
pop3_uidl_format = %m
