The info log says it starts up, and after a couple of seconds the error
log gets:

dovecot: Jun 22 01:33:08 Error: auth(default): Info: starting dovecot-auth

I can attach the core dump if you want, but consider that after 20 lines
or so it says:

9 [main] dovecot 19936 _cygtls::handle_exceptions: Error while dumping
state (probably corrupted stack)

Same behaviour (obviously starting from inetd):

| bash-3.2 > telnet localhost 143
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

There's no "* OK Dovecot ready.", and at this point the imap-login
process stays at 80-90% cpu. Anything I write is ignored. The log still
doesn't say anything about dovecot-auth until I stop the inetd service.
