Yeah, courier-imap has terrible logging.... You get almost no detail... I believe that to get the recent versions of courier-imap and vpopmail to together work reliably, you need to use the "--without-authdaemon" configure option for courier-imap.
Without this setting, you could typically authenticate for a short period and then all further auths would fail. Not sure if that is related to your problem though...
