Some more investigating and I'm positive the problem is between saslauthd
and PAM.

a simple test with "testsaslautd -u {username} -p {password} -s {any
service} will simply sit there, a ptrace will show the same pause in
output as if exim made the query.

What is causing saslauthd not to be able to authenticate against PAM?

Thanks, Jeff
