Sorry about the redundant post, but I just subscribed to the list and I
couldn't reach the archives. I didn't even think to read the UPGRADE doc
or look in the contrib.
Anyway, this did the trick, beside the fact that the CRAM-MD5
authenticates against the clear text password and the particular client
that is asking for this has requested clear passwords disabled. Oh Well.
Thanks a lot for the help!
