[Dovecot] Auth Issues - Urgent - Help!

Well, most of my issues are gone with adding auth cache.  However, I  
am having an issue.  Sometimes, even though cache incorrect passwords  
is disabled, new passwords do not work.  It would seem that once a  
user logs in with one password successfully the cache does not  
automatically retry if the user tries a different passwords.  I would  
think that the auth cache should check to see if the password changed  
on the ldap server if something other than the cached password is  

Is this something wrong with my configuraiton, or the auth code itself?
