LOGIN auth faq

This must be a faq, but I don't seem to see it.. I'm trying to log into an
imap server which claims just AUTH=LOGIN. With

imclient_authenticate(*imp,"digest-md5 cram-md5 login plain","imap",
      srv->user,minssf,maxssf)

I can log in fine to a server which claims AUTH=DIGEST-MD5 AUTH=CRAM-MD5 with
the above, but not to the former.. I think I am getting confused between
login and plain.. I just rebuilt libsasl with --enable-login. --enable-plain
is enabled by default, but still the above function call (from libcyrus,
which in turn calls sasl_client_start) returns "mechanism not supported".

What am I missing? (I shouldn't need "plain" either, should I?)

Cheers,

Patrick
