I didn't see anything particularly relevant in RFC 2829. Now that you mention
it, I see in RFC2251 (sect 4.2.1) that a client MUST establish a new
connection if the chosen SASL mechanism doesn't support the changing of
credentials. In our case, whether the mechanism supports it or not, the SASL
library really doesn't.

It seems to me that the current text in 4.2.1 is overly restrictive. The
approach that is implemented in these patches is equally secure to dropping
the connection and starting over. I would advocate this method for LDAPBIS.
