[Dovecot] expire plugin - setgid failed

I'm still having problems to get the expire plugin working. Now I get 
the following error when running the expire-tool.

Error: stat(/root/mail/.Trash/tmp) failed: Permission denied (euid=2005 

Somehow it tries to access root's mailbox with a standard user account. 
I'm already on v1.1rc8.
