You didn't provide the analogous output from the interactive shell to
see the differences (for example, USER might be being used), but from
your later strace, I guess CONFIG_FILE has something to do with it.

These threads seems relevant


That thread poster solved his problem by commenting out

 	service imap-postlogin {
 	# user = $default_internal_user

but I have no idea if it works, or whether it's a good idea, for your
case.  More docs
