Don't you think some hint of what version you're talking about would be
helpful? Anyway, I'm using the latest karmic dovecot, and I've never had

Please don't say things like that. There aren't (m)any developers here (any
there are keep a very low profile), and "we" haven't changed anything. My
bet is that you let it install a new config file - when your choice of
upgrade methods tells you that it wants to install a config file, and the
version on the system has been modified from the installed version, it is
_almost never_ right to tell it to install the new version. Generally the
old version will work, if not perfectly. You should always choose to diff
the two versions though. Do:
$ locate .dpkg-
and see if there are any files for dovecot. If there are, diff them, and
figure out what you need to change.
