saslauthd failures during xfer command

I'm trying to transfer a user between two machines in a murder using
the xfer command.
xfer user.testuser hostname 1
xfermailbox: The remote Server(s) denied the operation
Looking through the log files, it appears that the user gets
partially transferred and then saslauthd on the mudermaster starts
returning 'Password verification failed'.
Running saslauthd in debug mode gives
saslauthd :do_auth : auth failure: [user=backend]
[service=mupdate] [realm=] [mech=kerberos5] [reason=saslauthd
The log file on the host the user is moving to shows
un 28 15:45:19 bratwurst imap: authentication to remote
mupdate server failed: "undefined error!"
Jun 28 15:45:19 bratwurst imap: can not connect to mupdate
server for reservation on 'user.testuser.bxscience'
We have saslauthd using keberos5. We have an MIT KDC.
I didn't see anything useful in the KDC logs
We are using the cyrus SASL (versions 2.1.19) rpm that comes with REHL4.
During the transfer there are lots and lots of authentications
occurring on the murder master for the 'backend' user.
Anyone know where my problem is, or why it is happening?
Is it saslauthd choking or my KDC rejecting the password?
