[Dovecot] dovecot 2.x via xinetd

I was using dovecot 1.2.x via xinetd with a setup like http://wiki.dovecot.org/InetdInstall  
Since I upgraded to Debian Wheezy, shipping dovecot 2.x, it no longer works. At best, I end up with stuff like

	Error: net_connect_unix(anvil) failed: No such file or directory
	Fatal: Couldn't connect to anvil

Any clues?

(add me in Cc in replies, I'm not suscribed to the list)
