I just fixed a problem with identical symptoms on my Solaris 10 system.

I built my own version of cyrus-sasl-2.1.20 because Sun don't include 
saslauthd in the version os sasl they include in Solaris.

It turns out that I needed a symbolic link from /usr/lib/sasl2 to 

# cd /usr/lib
# ln -s ../local/lib/sasl2

It is strange that imap server did not need the link but sieve did.
