Saslauthd and 2 authentication mechanism

I want to use 2 authentication mechanisms with Saslauthd. When the first
one gives "no", it should try the other one.

The man-page says: "saslauthd supports one or more 'authentication
mechanisms', but it does not work, saslauthd uses only the first mechanism.

paul at vlis:~/techniek$ ps ax | grep sasl
 4951 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -a pam ldap
 4952 ?        S      0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -a pam ldap
 4953 ?        S      0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -a pam ldap
 4954 ?        S      0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -a pam ldap
 4955 ?        S      0:00 /usr/sbin/saslauthd -a pam ldap

I have also tried "-a 'pam ldap'" but then saslauthd does not start.

Does somebody know more?
