Ah, thanks for pointing that out. I was using the Cyrus CVS and the last
patch I sent introduced this bug. The Cyrus library still requires authcid
and authzid to be non-empty, but usually it's handled by copying authcid to
authzid on the client and on the server. So a "default" authzid usually
doesn't get
transmitted over the wire.
