Very good, Robert!

The addition of krb5 to the SASL plugins may be the reason that you
need to specify the realm.

Damjan needs to respond on changing the package's /opt/csw/etc/sasldb2
directory back to a file, as it was in the previous package version.
Having the directory defined with group sasl was important to Damjan.
I will see if I can find out more details on this.

It was my understanding that if a process is not owned by root and uses
the SASL database, then that process owner should be added to the sasl
group.  For sendmail, the sm-mta process is owned by root.  I am not
sure if the submission process uses SASL, which is owned by smmsp.

Thanks, Alex
