Intermittent Sending Auth Problem

We have 3200 users.
I have recently upgraded our sendmail server to Fedora 11 using saslauthd
Since upgrading, users randomly and intermittently experience sending auth
failures. The user will attempt to send, and will get a box requesting
username/password. service saslauthd restart solves the problem.
There are no log entries when this occurs.
Here are relevant sendmail.mc entries:
TRUST_AUTH_MECH(`EXTERNAL DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN PLAIN')dnl
define(`confAUTH_MECHANISMS', `EXTERNAL GSSAPI DIGEST-MD5 CRAM-MD5 LOGIN
Here are /etc/sysconfig/saslauthd entries:
Here is output of saslauthd -v:
authentication mechanisms: getpwent kerberos4 kerberos5 pam rimap shadow
I have another box with Fedora 12 and it has saslauthd version 2.1.23. It's
not a live box so I don't know if it would have the same problem. I did a
yum update on the live box and it did not show an update for saslauthd so I
don't know what the deal is.
Any help with this would be appreciated :)
