OT: sasl and memory leaks?

Hello all,
I use a mail server that links with saslauthd to do my password checking 
through pam when I send a message out through SMTP. There apparently is 
a leak where in if some kind soul just happens to forget his password 
many many times in a row, said leak will take up a lot of memory because 
something isn't freed. So here is my question. This leak was a DOS 
attack just used against me, and it managed to wipe out a couple 
services before I managed to get to it. Has someone either 1) fixed the 
leak, or delt with this problem before? If so, any suggestions would be 
really appreciated.
