I looked up the openldap archives, but have found no answer to this
query. So, I am reposting.

The problem is that when I use DIGEST-MD5 binding with openldap, for a
particular user say - 'user1', then the first time it works; then if I
use 'user1' again, it fails and says 'Invalid Credentials'. I checked the
userid and password, which is being sent correctly.
To get rid of this problem, I have to log in as a second user (say
'user2'), and then if I use 'user1' again, it works.
This suggests that some kind of caching is happening either at the
Openldap or at SASL level.
How can I turn off this caching?

It would probably be useful to say what version of OpenLDAP you are using.
