Problem with ptloader and SASL authenticated LDAP

Hi All,

I've been trying to use the LDAP pts module with Cyrus imapd 2.3.6.
I've had reasonably good success with ptloader configured to do
*anonymous* binds, but when I set 'ldap_sasl: 1' in imapd.conf ptloader
fails to bind to my LDAP server with the following error:

    Unable to set LDAP_OPT_X_SASL_SECPROPS.

The master process is running with GSSAPI credentials (I'm able to
bind to the LDAP server with these credentials using the 'ldapsearch'
command, even when I manually specify SASL secprops with ldapsearch's
-O option).  By default it appears that cyrus sets the 'noplain' SASL
secprop.  Looking throught archives I haven't seen mention of the above
error.  My ldap_* configs look like this:

    ldap_filter: (uid=%U)
    ldap_start_tls: 1
    ldap_tls_cacert_dir: /etc/ssl/certs
    ldap_mech: gssapi
    ldap_base: ou=people,dc=example,dc=com
    ldap_group_base: ou=group,dc=example,dc=com
    ldap_sasl: 1
    ldap_uri: ldap://

Am I missing something big?
