pam_mysql 0.4.7 which has been patched to allow for crypt passwords and
md5 hashes. My previous server had both types stored. I suppose one
would be to move to a more stable (newer) version of pam_mysql. However,
my patch only seems to work with this version. I do remember trying
version 0.5 with not much luck. I have a spare box I'm going to retry with.
If I could convert the md5 hashed passwords to crypt ones I may be able
to get around it. This is another reason I hesitant to move to auxprop.
Needs a little more research. Any tips on how to tell if there are
memory leaks in pam_mysql?

Sorry, I'm not familiar with that phrase. Do you mean I need to define
somewhere in the configuration or compile time /dev/random or
/dev/urandom? I see the compile option in cyrus-sasl. Am I barking up
the wrong tree?
Thanks for your help.
