Courier IMAP and FAM

Last Friday, while tracking Debian Testing, the courier package was updated, and while authentication could be seen to be successful, actually using IMAP seemed to fail.

Turns out the FAM package was somehow to blame; installing fam and libfam0 was the solution. This uninstalled gamin for me. So if you’re pulling your hair out with a similar courier/imap issue, then perhaps have a look at the courier-imap mailing list.
