Someone on the list posted that SMTP AUTH would fail if the domain directory didn't exist, because vchkpw needed it. They were trying to set up a separate box for inbound SMTP, and it would only have the qmail control files and a link to MySQL to authenticate users.
I just tried to verify that problem with 5.4.0-rc2, but could not reproduce it. SMTP AUTH worked for a domain without a directory.
I'm closing out our open bug report. If the person who originally posted about it can get in touch with me, I'd like them to confirm that it still fails for them. It might be another problem that we should track down.
