The error message means that the above connect string doesn't contain
user=. But obviously it does above. So either you're looking at wrong
file, or there's something else weird going on.

First of all check dovecot -n output. Does it show passdb sql with args
value pointing to the same dovecot-sql.conf file as you're looking at?
