    A user used a password with a german Umlaut in the password (like U+00E4 in utf8) and I realised that login with this password to migrate their mailboxes to our server was not possible:
    Mar 16 01:13:26 host dovecot: auth-worker(29365): ....: Password mismatch
    - This error occurs when logging in with Roundcube (I checked, that utf8 is chosen, found it in standard-config).
    - Trying with Thunderbird it somehow logs in after 3 attempts and shows received Mails o_O but does not work properly (2x password mismatch, then sometimes working.
    I found this open bug and wanted to ask, if that's the problem? (I wanted to comment there but couldn't)
    I can live with requesting to change it, hehe, but don't get, why it shouldn't work :)

    Yes, the issue is already reported in the bug tracker. We do not know yet what's the real cause of this. Might be some double escaping in the code.
