None.  I was hoping it worked for you.  It did not work for me. :-(

I use logsentry (look for Sentry Tools on Sourceforge) to report log info 
daily, and it allows me to filter out stuff like that.  In a previous 
installation, using local6 to feed to /var/log/imapd.log worked fine.  I 
don't know why it doesn't work in the present install, but I don't have 
time to figure out why either.  (FreeBSD 4.9 SECURITY, running cyrus-imapd 
2.1.16 and cyrus-sasl 2.1.20)
