Authentication error

I am installing a Cyrus box with the following configuration:

Machine: Dual Xeon 2GHz, 1Gb RAM
System: Debian GNU/Linux 3.0, Cyrus 2.1 (Backported) and SASL2 (Backported)
Authentication: LDAP

I have created a cyrus user under LDAP directory and the PAM modules has
been set up to When I try a "testsaslauthd -u cyrus -p
[hidden]" I get a Sucess status, however, a "cyradm -u cyrus localhost"
doesn't work.

mail:~ cyradm -u cyrus localhost
IMAP Password: [hidden]
    at /usr/lib/perl5/Cyrus/IMAP/ line 118
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server as user cyrus

I have checked the LDAP log, it recieves the cyrus request and the
authentication seems to be ok. I tried a telnet 0 143, using the cyrus
login, but it gives "Connection closed by foreign host".

With a strace, I got a segmentation fault. Does anyone have got this
problem? The authentication is ok, LDAP receives tha request, but Cyrus
can't process it.

I tried to compile cyrus 2.1.16 by hand and I have got the same problem.

Thanks for any help
