I have noticed the same thing. It seems that doveadm ignores -i.
"dovecot" works with -c /path/to/other/dovecot.conf, but it too
We got the idea to try -i <instance_name> from
http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Tools/Doveadm/Instance , but "doveadm help"
itself does not show a -i.

And this is a big problem for trying to use "doveadm director"
commands when the director instance uses the nonstandard paths. I
haven't found a way to do that yet! "-c /path/to/other/dovecot.conf"
Currently on 2.2.5, about to switch to 2.2.6 EE. It seemed like it
worked back in 2.0.9 before upgrading.
