Thanks for the reply.

For now I use saslauthd with ldap for evertyhing except groups.
If it is possible, I'd like to leave nsswitch (and any system file) 
intact, and use only cyrus config file + ldap :
- I like the separation between the system and cyrus for authentication.
- The posix group is not very adapted with our use of mailbox sharing.

Where can I find more information about "pts/ldap" ? I have seen, is it stable now 
? How can I use it ?

I use the debian sarge version of sasl and cyrus-imap 2.2.12 from source.

Thanks again.
