I have given up on trying to patch imap-uw. This software is just too weird, not
at all configurable. I was trying to set the user's mail directory to an
absolute path, but it just doesn't seem possible.
So, if i can't make the software suit my needs, maybe i can make my needs suit
the software.. :-(
