  default /etc/pki/dovecot/certs/dovecot.pem changed to /etc/pki/dovecot.pem
  if ssl_cert_file was not set in dovecot.conf file (which it was by the rpm)
  then hardcoded default was /etc/pki/certs/dovecot.pem, which didn't match
  the new path of /etc/pki/dovecot/dovecot.pem (note subdir certs deprecated)
- fix bug #160679
  wrong permissions on /etc/pki/dovecot/dovecot.pem, needs to be readable by
  more than root.
