Sigh, so Cyrus SASL is initializing properly.  It's just failing and has a
totally insufficient amount of logging.

In no particular order:
   * What are the contents of /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname?
   * Which exact version of Cyrus SASL is installed (`apt-cache policy
   * If you upgrade to the Cyrus SASL from Debian Unstable, does it work?

It may come down to your needing to install the Cyrus SASL debug symbols
and start bisecting sasl_client_new() with breakpoints until we can figure
out what is actually returning SASL_FAIL (-1) (or adding breakpoints to
every SASL_FAIL return in Cyrus SASL and seeing which one hits).
