Use strace -Ff -p PIDOFSMTPD > out 2>&1

and analyze out after you tried to connect. Your problem comes probably
with the fact that smtpd is chrooted to /var/spool/postfix by default
under debian.

So you need probably to link authdaemon dir to somewhere in the chroot
(or mount -o bind the dir or ...), examining the strace result will give
you the path searched.

I used this debugging method to make it working with pwcheck.
