I have a lot of problems to compile or to run the dovecot on my OpenSUSE 
10.3 x86_64.

Sometimes the compiled binary cannot read the existing and running 
config, the dovecot -n results in:

ian:/opt/src/build/dovecot-1.1.rc7 # /opt/dovecot/sbin/dovecot -n # 
1.1.rc7: /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
Error: Missing auth section for server default
Fatal: Invalid configuration in /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf

The prebuild RPM-daemon (v 10.0.13) said:

auth default:

This looks fine and right, but there is no access to my old maildir 
(created by courier-imap) and I found several entries like this in my
