Your version 2.1.1 is affected by a bug which
has been fixed in newer Dovecot Releases:

Also see http://dovecot.org/doc/NEWS-2.1

v2.1.7 2012-05-29  Timo Sirainen <tss at iki.fi>

  * LDAP: Compatibility fix for v2.0: ldap: If attributes contain
    ldapAttr=key=template%$ and ldapAttr doesn't exist, skip the key
    instead of using "template" value with empty %$ part for the key.

Please update to latest stable release 2.1.8
which contains a lot of important fixes.
