Well, google back for when this hit me (in the ITS), and I think I
discussed this on openldap-software at some point too. As I remember:
Until 2.3.mumble, there was a dangling pointer (read: leak) that had the
wonderful, and totally wrong, side effect of taking a failed SASL bind and
falling through to a simple bind, server side. The trick is to make OS X
do a simple bind (if that's what you want), which you do by either not
supporting SASL or pretending to not support SASL. One idea would be to
disable SASL in autoconf. I currently ACL out supportedSASLMechanisms. And
I think there are directives you can supply cyrus-sasl to suppress
mechanisms, although I'd be curious to hear if they work (or not) in this case.
