How does the PublicMailboxAdmins group get set? Looks to me like the problem is that it's not getting set to doveadm. Here's an easy way to check if that's the problem or something else: http://hg.dovecot.org/dovecot-2.2/rev/500e8dd7a389

If that doesn't help: Show your full doveconf -n, set auth_debug=yes and mail_debug=yes and show the debug logs for IMAP login and doveadm. There's a difference somewhere in there.
