OK, I am attempting to use the userdb connection to facilitate per user
migration to Maildir format from mbox.  Here's the first user:

more /home/dovecot.passwd

The configuration was set up as:

  userdb passwd {

I changed this to:

  userdb passwd-file {
    args = /home/dovecot.conf

And unfortunately the dovecot daemon dies after successfully launching.
