I have read the sources (sendmail-8.13.0.Beta2/sendmail/map.c) and it 
seems that current implementation of socket map in *sendmail* does not 
pass "explanation strings" to [no fault at cyrus side]

All current version of my "cyrus & sendmail integration" should be 
capable to handle TEMP replies from smmapd of cyrus.
AFAIR some early version did not do it.
