I have recently upgraded from version cyrus-imapd-2.1.12  to
cyrus-imapd-2.2.12 , and as part of the requirement also upgraded my sasl
lib to cyrus-sasl-2.1.21.  I converted my db files to skiplist and sieve
scripts, etc.  All works fine after starting.  Authentication of users /
mailboxes works fine.  The sieve scripts are working as well.  The only
problem I am facing, is everytime I try to login using cyradm (with command
line, or from Perl scripts) i get get the following:
# cyradm --auth login --user cyrus --pass ANYTHING localhost
Login failed: can't request info until later in exchange at
line 114
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server with login as cyrus

Any idea why standard authentication would work but cyradm would not?
