I worked up a simple patch against 2.4.12 which seems to work in my test 
environment.  See the attachment.

Honestly, I don't see what the variable disable_referalls really does 
anymore.  I'd remove it, but I don't understand how it is used in this 
code in imap/imapd.c:

static const struct sasl_callback mysasl_cb[] = {
     { SASL_CB_GETOPT, &mysasl_config, NULL },
     { SASL_CB_PROXY_POLICY, &imapd_proxy_policy, (void*) &imapd_proxyctx },
     { SASL_CB_CANON_USER, &imapd_canon_user, (void*) &disable_referrals },

Nothing changes the value of disable_referrals that I can see.  It is 
initialized to 0.

Should I file a bug for this and attach my patch?
