The problem is that qmail-ldap doesn't work the way Dovecot expects  
it to work. I'd even say that qmail-ldap'a auth_imap is broken since  
it doesn't work the way checkpassword binary is supposed to work.

However setting the auth user like I said earlier would most likely  
fix this. But you'll first need to know what the auth user is. It's  
not the virtual username, it's some system user in /etc/passwd. But I  
don't know what username qmail-ldap is using, so you'll first need to  
figure out what the user is (it's the same user that's used to store  
the mails).
