Description Anduin Withers 2004-08-10 04:57:15 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET 
CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
dovecot has a start priority of 54, named has 55, an argument can be 
made that dovecot is at least two off (cyrus-imapd has 65 as a 

One bad scenario this creates:

In the case where someone uses the host address to explicitly specify 
the listen address (imap_listen and/or imaps_listen for example) 
dovecot will fail to start.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set imap_listen to a hostname resolvable only once named has 
started (like in a local caching nameserver, etc).

O.K. - moved the numbers to 65 35 to match cyrus-imapd, for what its
worth postfix and sendmail are 80 30. I didn't add any logic to the
%post script to try and move the symlinks if dovecot had already been
installed, a chkconfig --del followed by a --add should fix it for any
previously installed packages.

Reassigning to RHEL4.
