Bug#441612: cyrus-admin-2.2: sieveshell cannot connect to server

I removed all firewall rules from iptables, and it made no difference.

I also checked /etc/hosts.deny (it only contains lmtp: ALL, and
commenting that line doesn't make a difference).

Restarting cyrus also doesn't help.

When running sieveshell this is everything that comes to the log:

Sep 10 16:23:40 mail cyrus/master[15718]: about to exec
Sep 10 16:23:40 mail cyrus/sieve[15718]: executed
Sep 10 16:23:40 mail cyrus/sieve[15718]: accepted connection
Sep 10 16:23:40 mail cyrus/master[13845]: process 15718 exited, status 0
