Hi all,

I've installed rc23 in a new testing machine, and i've had some permission 
problems related to dovecot-master.conf. As I have my master passwords in 
that file, I don't want it to be world readable.

dovecot -n shows that auth_user is nobody, so setting the permissions to 
nobody.whatever 640 solves the problem.

Anyway, I've tried to change the auth_user setting with no effect. Is it
