Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cyrus-sasl-2.1.15-3 cyrus-sasl-gssapi-2.1.15-3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure your Sendmail.conf to have saslauthd as the auth method
2. Fire up /usr/sbin/saslauthd -a kerberos5 -d

Actual Results:  You get the auth failure with reason=saslauthd
internal error

Expected Results:  Authentication should have finish correctly.

Additional info:

Kinit for that user, derek, works fine on the machine so kerberos5
authentication is working fine.
