Well, if saslauthd is going to turn around and ask LDAP if the password
is correct, then yes -- that's in the dictionary under "loop, endless:
see endless loop" ... "endless loop: see loop, endless" ...

What is recommended is you configure saslauthd to use Kerberos, and then
slapd to use saslauthd....  It's in the archives...  Search for
saslauthd, oh... almost a year ago now, I think....
