FIX for augeas lens for cyrus-imapd

Description of problem:

If you add add an new parameter via the augtool to cyrus-imapd.conf
then the entry is not in a valid syntax, and cyrus parser complains
"syntax error"

Tested with

* cyrus-imapd-2.4.17-6
* augeas-1.1.0-2.fc20.x86_64

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install augtool
2. Install cyrus-imapd
3. Make sure that parameter in step 4 does not exist in imapd.conf
4. augtool set /files/etc/imapd.conf/munge8bit files
5. start cyrus-imapd --> FAILS

Actual results:
in imapd.conf:
munge8bit : false

in log from cyrus-imapd (line number may vary):
invalid option name on line 16 of configuration file /etc/imapd.conf

Expected results:
For cyrus-imapd in this version you must not use a space after parameter name

cyrus-imapd.conf should read 
munge8bit: false
