Looks like this problem is related to the mechanism that you are connecting
with. If I explicitly request the 'PLAIN' mechanism, then I see:

Sep  4 15:06:25 neo cyrus/imap[28930]: login: vpn.olp.net []
dwhite PLAIN User logged in

but if I do the LOGIN mechanism (which I think is really the RFC 3501 6.2.3
login command, which doesn't support authz), then I get something similar
to what you're getting:

Sep  4 15:06:00 neo cyrus/imap[28930]: login: vpn.olp.net []
cyrus plaintext User logged in
