It can use PAM if configured to do so. Just set pwcheck_method: pam in 

pam_ldap will not use SASL, it will use simple bind. Therefore, the loop is
broken and it "should work"(tm).

And it is sort of confusing, yes.

This one helped me a lot, although I don't use kerberos:


Also the SASL docs were very useful (after I understood the concept...).

And, of course, the archives of this mailing list, I still have some saved
threads... :)
