But you are using the code from the SIS-enabled repo. SIS code affects
also multi and single dbox code. If you don't want to test SIS related
things, but would prefer mdbox over sdbox, so I'll repeat myself:
Use the SIS-less code from: http://hg.dovecot.org/dovecot-2.0.
(In your first mail you mentioned that you are using the code from the
other repo.)

See if that settings work again after switching back to SIS-less Dovecot
2.0 code.

The trapper recommends today: cafebabe.1021110 at localdomain.org
