[Dovecot] Auth socket can't listen using ssl

I'm using Dovecot 2.2.9 (debian package on testing).
It seems that it's not possible to open an auth socket using ssl. I'm
using this configuration :

service auth {
  inet_listener authxmpp-client {
    address = [ips]
    port = 5220
  inet_listener genericauth-client {
    ssl = yes
    address = [ips]
    port = 5221

Both ports are running fine. But the 5221, which should listen in ssl
(because of the "ssl = yes" as written in the documentation here :
http://wiki2.dovecot.org/Services ) is using plaintext.
If I telnet directly to it, the content is delivered on an unsecured

Is there a way to make ssl works on this kind of socket ?

Thanks a lot
