Package: sasl2-bin
Version: 2.1.19.dfsg1-0.2
Severity: important

I'm using saslauthd with pam backend (using libpam-mysql), and on a medium busy 
server the saslauthd 
processes grows until all the physical ram is exausted.
It is then necessary to restart the service to make the system usable again.
Following some hints like described here:
I disabled thread pools with "-n 0" at the high (for me) cost of spawning a new 
process for every
request and this works as a temporary workaround, but it's unsuitable if the 
load rises.
