Do you use ldap?!
If so, then you are most likely in a for a long tough debugging session.
Not easy to do using some emails and requires a lot and lot of reading.

At this point, you will want to start doing some debugging.
- check /var/run/
- does it contain a symlink from:
saslauthd (thus /var/run/saslauthd)
- check /var/spool/postfix/
- is /var/spool/postfix/var/run/saslauthd a real directory?
- does it contain, after starting saslauthd a valid socket?
If yes, so far so good, then, check if the configuration file from
/etc/saslauthd (but it could be in /etc/postfix/saslauthd, I don't
recall) is available also in the chroot /var/spool/postfix/
Then stop saslauthd, and start it with the -d flag (debug) and see what
it gives for messages.
And what one can also do: strace -P <pid of saslauthd> and see what it
tries to accomplish ;)
(ps: there are reasons why I dumped cyrus btw,... dovecot solution is a
zillion times cleaner and doesn't require hacks... ;)
