rats. close ... but no cigar ...

thx! i'll have a look ...

great! not my fault ... ;-)
PLEASE post to the list if/when you've got something to test ...

the add-a-user-to-sasldb is ONLY to test saldauth using testsasldauth ... i understood it to be necessary

exactly. well, sorta. hence, confusion on my part ...
Luc's HOWTO, in fact, refers in the install.html to the building of testsaslauthd, but, alas, never (unless i've missed it) talks to how -- if at all -- its to be used in verifying the web-cyradm setup
