PLAIN [SASL(-5): bad protocol / cancel: Got more data than we were expecting in the PLAIN plugin

in our environment RedHat Enterpise Linux 6 running cyrus-imapd-2.3.16-13.el6_6.x86_64
from time to time and for a rather short time the log shows messages of the form
cyrus/imap: badlogin: www.redaktion.tu-berlin.de [184.108.40.206] PLAIN [SASL(-5): bad protocol / cancel: Got more data than we were expecting in the PLAIN plugin
www.redaktion.tu-berlin.de is the only host affected and this is the host running the horde (5.1.3) webmailer.
The user gets an authentication error in this case.
What's behind this? Any pointer to investigate further or solve it?
Kind regards, Frank Elsner
