Postfix SMTP AUTH with TLS Problems

I know this has come up a few times before, but I'm pulling my hair out
trying to get my Postfix-tls installation working to do SMTP auth. I have
followed the very helpful howto below to the letter.


When I restart my postfix and telnet to localhost 25, my postfix chokes.
Here's what I see in my mail.log:

May 29 14:12:16 sawdois postfix/smtpd[9906]: starting TLS engine
May 29 14:12:16 sawdois postfix/smtpd[9906]: fatal: no SASL authentication
May 29 14:12:17 sawdois postfix/master[9898]: warning: process
/usr/lib/postfix/smtpd pid 9906 exit status 1
May 29 14:12:17 sawdois postfix/master[9898]: warning:
/usr/lib/postfix/smtpd: bad command startup -- throttling

Here's background on my installation:

Debian Woody unstable
Postfix 2.0.16-4
Postfix-tls 2.0.16-4
sasl2-bin 2.1.15-6

The above HOWTO is supposed to work with Postfix still running chroot.
I've tried to unchroot Postfix to see if that would work but to no

One thought is that the Postfix packages don't seem to support PAM.
But if this is  I haven't found anyone on the net with a similar problem
and I would assume it would have come up already if this were the key

Here are the links that I have:

Any ideas about where I should go from here?
