User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
Successfully authenticated logins to my dovecot imap (imap and imaps) server are counted as failed ones.

Ssh connections, and console logins, behave as they should, and only count the failed authentications.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to dovecot imap-server (imap or imaps)
2. Do a successful authentication

Actual Results:  2. 'pam -v' will show this as a failed connection even when it is valid
3. When the number of failed connections have reached the limit in pam_abl.conf new connecton to the imap server will be stopped

Expected Results:  Successful authentications should not be counted by pam_abl
