Jose, I finally figured out what it was.  I was also following the thread
from the sasl list:
Apparently, James Madill was having the exact same problem that I had.
There was a suggestion to run kinit -k.  I did that and I got an error
saying that the principal wasn't found.  To my surprise the missing
principal turned out to be host/pianta-scramble.  Shouldn't it be

My /etc/hosts file contails               pianta-scramble localhost.localdomain localhost

My dns server has both forward and reverse mappings.  A lookup on the ip
address on the machine returns the fully qualified domain name of the
machine.  Is yours configured with the fully qualified domain name?

Another question:  How long does it take for saslauthd to authenticate a
kerberos user?  Mine takes a good 10+ seconds to return success.  If I use
the incorrect password, it returns failure in a split second.  How does
yours compare to this?  Can you think of why it is taking so long?
