Not seing SASL auth metchanisms from sieve

$ telnet [host] 2000
"IMPLEMENTATION" "Cyrus timsieved v2.2.3"
"SIEVE" "fileinto reject envelope vacation imapflags notify subaddress relational regex"

Any reason I don't see the SASL auth mechanisms? Cyrus IMAPd is
working fine against saslauthd/pam. My main problem is that sieveshell
won't connect to [host] and I think the lack of displaying the SASL
auth mechanisms is the cause.

I'm running Cyrus IMAPD 2.2.3 on FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE.

My imapd.conf:
  allowallsubscribe: false
  allowanonymouslogin: false
  allowapop: false
  allownewnews: false
  allowplaintext: true
  allowusermoves: false
  configdirectory: [path]
  defaultpartition: default
  duplicate_db: berkeley-nosync
  idlesocket: [path]
  lmtpsocket: [path]
  notifysocket: [path]
  partition-default: [path]
  postmaster: postmaster
  sasl_mech_list: PLAIN
  sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd
  sendmail: [path]
  sievedir: /ext/data/mail/.sieve
  unix_group_enable: true
  unixhierarchysep: false
