It can be run in debug mode, but should be done manually, not when the
service is "daemonized" (or so says "/etc/defaults/saslauthd" file).
@Ted: I would also try by playing with/increasing the number of threads
that can be spawned by the service. By default is set to "5", but if it's
a busy e-mail server, this number can be easily reached :-?
