unfortunately neither sasldb nor auxprop is compiled in at redhat 
enterprise linux 4 and I wouldn't like to compile everything from scratch:

# saslauthd -v
saslauthd 2.1.19
authentication mechanisms: getpwent kerberos5 pam rimap shadow ldap

Could I just write

sasl_pwcheck_method: getpwent saslauthd

instead so /etc/passwd will be used whereas a linux-user with the same 
name as the admin-user of cyrus would have to be created?
