I am using Howard's ldap based sasl auxpop plugin

It is, but in the form of u:<username>@<realm>.  Look in

The parsing of authzid works as expected, however slap_sasl_getdn()
generates DN of the uid=<userid>,cn=<realm),cn=auth form, rather than
uid=<userid>,cn=<realm>,cn=<mech>,cn=auth.  This causes problems with
existing sasl-regexps which expect <mech> in place of <realm> as described
in slapd.conf.  I hope this explains better.  It seems to me the internal
sasl operation does not require mech, therefore slap_sasl_getdn()  cannot
set cn=<mech> properly in the sasl DN.
