Nope, this is precisely the error I'm getting on my 2.3.16 install:
ibis:~~$ dpkg -l | grep cyrus-common
ii  cyrus-common-2.3                    2.3.16-1 
   Cyrus mail system - common files
ibis:~~$ cyradm localhost
Login disabled.
cyradm: cannot authenticate to server as pgoetz

I'm just asking because it's not working for me when I disable plain 
text authentication.  <:)

See my previous message for efforts to use cyradm
[--auth mechanism] [--tlskey keyfile] flags to get around this.
