[Dovecot] Stop Maildir appending to path

Dovecot is working perfectly except for one problem. I have local
users and virtual users. Local users are ~/Maildir. And virtual users
are /home/vmail/domain/user. The problem is, it keeps trying to fetch
virtual mail at /home/vmail/domain/user/Maildir. It doesn't exist the
user/ dir is the Maildir.
To get around this, I have to make symlinks on each virtual email.
What should I check? How do I make it stop appending Maildir to my
virtual users path?
If I set mail_location to the virtual user path, it works fine. But I
won't be able to get local mail.
So I... have mail_location pointing to local users ~/Maildir while
UserDatabase/Extrafields feature will overwrite the path for virtual
password_query = SELECT email as user, password, CONCAT('/home/
vmail/', path) as userdb_mail, 5000 as userdb_uid, 5000 as userdb_gid
FROM view_users WHERE email='%u';
