Default CentOS 6.4 x86_64 - ISPConfig 3.0.5.1 - Dovecot Errors

I just did a fresh installation of The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.4 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3) and ISPConfig 3.0.5.1. There are some things that don't work correctly.

On my old installation of CentOS 6.3 with ISPConfig 3.0.4.6, the dovecot.i686 1:2.0.9-2.el6_1.1 conf files are located at:
/etc/dovecot-sql.conf
/etc/dovecot.conf

On the new installation of Centos 6.4 and ISPConfig 3.0.5.1, the dovecot.x86_64 1:2.0.9-5.el6 conf files are located at:
/etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf
/etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf

ISPConfig shows an error in the ISPConfig Mail - Log files panel as follows:
Mar 21 22:34:07 pluto clamd[2049]: SelfCheck: Database status OK.

Mar 21 22:38:02 pluto dovecot: log: Error: service(auth): child 28528 returned error 89 (Fatal failure)

I patched up some of these errors by typing the following commands:
ln -s /etc/dovecot/dovecot-sql.conf /etc/dovecot-sql.conf
ln -s /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf /etc/dovecot.conf

Can the author please fix the installation guide and advise us of the proper way to fix the errors for The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.4 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)?
