That only way to proxy as a user (regardless of Cyrus or RH version) is
to use a SASL mechanism which supports proxying. Given your list of
RPMs, the only mechs which you have that are capable of this are PLAIN
and DIGEST-MD5. Make sure that whatever client you are using is
choosing one of these two mechanisms.
