[Dovecot] Dovecot and IPv6

I am trying to run Dovecot with IPv6 and IPv4. I have the following
command in my conf:

listen = *

This makes Dovecot listen on all addresses on IPv4.
I then add:

listen = [::]

So the conf now has both listen lines. This forces Dovecot to listen on
all IPv6 addresses, but it no longer responds to requests on IPv4.

Is there a way to get Dovecot to listen on both protocols?
