I will be adding courier-imap-1.5.1 to portage in the next couple of days.
At first glance in the log, it looks like you are using ipv6 addresses...

authmodulelist="authcustom authcram authuserdb authldap authpam"
That is the default setting... but it may not work for you... I would suggest
tseting by authenticating to shadow... if you need instructions on how to set up
this file further please let me know.
courier-imap-1.5.1 has been added to portage. Added support for unicode
searching, and proper listening to the ipv6 use variable. Let me know if this

MySQL database. The /etc/courier-imap/authmysqlrc configuration file defines
the particular details regarding the MySQL database and the schema of the mail
account list table.
