I got Cyrus-IMAPD running on a FC3 Machine, but I can't get Sieve

I always run into the following Problem:

[borkert at heptagon ~]$ sieveshell localhost
connecting to localhost
Please enter your password: 
unable to connect to server at /usr/bin/sieveshell line 169, <STDIN>
line 1.

Jan 13 21:52:11 heptagon master[22802]: about to exec /usr/lib/cyrus-
Jan 13 21:52:11 heptagon sieve[22802]: executed
Jan 13 21:52:11 heptagon sieve[22802]: accepted connection
Jan 13 21:52:13 heptagon master[18026]: process 22802 exited, status 0

I don't know whats the Problem here. Cyrus-IMAPD has no problem
authenticating, why is Sieve not working?

SASL Method in /etc/imapd.conf is:

sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
sasl_mech_list: CRAM-MD5

I'm not relly sure about how this sasl thing works. Cyrus authenticates
users without Problems even with saslauthd not running. It needs read
access to /etc/sasldb2 . The option "sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd"
confuses me here. I always thought Cyrus would be using the daemon, this
option seem to me very clear. I can't find any usable documentation
about this.

Hope anyone can help me here.
