I don't see a problem with this, and since it's sat for awhile, I plan to implement it. We can always undo if it's a problem for some reason.

patches against trunk.

There should be spaces between the "=" sign ! Otherwise, the test
is ALWAYS true.

Also, you should set the variable AUTO_AUTHDAEMON inside /etc/conf.d/courier-imap.

Why isn't this fixed after more than 1 year?

This is breaking peoples email systems, this isn't of low severity.

After 5 minutes of lurking around I managed to fix it, why haven't the devs been able to do the same?

I agree with Luís. This bug should not be flagged low ; The courier imap installation is broken by default.

I opened a bug yesterday that was assigned to Tobias. I now see that there are three problems with this package:

1) The conditions to start and stop authdaemond are wrong and always going to be "true".
2) The default condition needs to be put into /etc/conf.d/courier-imap per Philippe's comment.
3) The stop code for authdaemond needs to be taken from the end of the start function and put at the beginning of the stop function.
