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):
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.
