Realm Case Question

I'm using saslauthd with "-a kerberos5 -r" Everything works fine,
except when I try and specify the realm in lowercase. For some reason,
it's not converting that to the kerberos realm, and I'm wondering if a)
it's even possible, and b) what I'm missing.
In my /etc/krb5.conf, I have the following:
.contentconnections.com = CONTENTCONNECTIONS.COM
contentconnections.com = CONTENTCONNECTIONS.COM
When I do a 'testsaslauthd -u <user> -p <pass> -r
contentconnections.com', saslauthd returns:
saslauthd: do_auth : auth failure:
[realm=contentconnections.com] [mech=kerberos5] [reason=saslauthd
Now, the question is, I thought with the [domain_realm] setting, it
should recognize the lowercase and try to use Kerberos with the actual
realm name, CONTENTCONNECTIONS.COM.
The reason I'm doing this is because I'm using Courier for IMAP and I'd
like to keep using full e-mail addresses as usernames. This will allow
us to setup multiple domains and realms (which is the next step).
