I may be wrong, but I would think that this still won't work. If you use 
pam or shadow saslauth should use system users and not check the sasldb.

We are using Dovecot for POP/IMAP and so I use it for SASL authentication 
since CentOS 5 as well. That has worked out-of-the-box since I first tried 
it. I see you want to use Cyrus. I've no experience with saslauthd and 
postfix, I used to use it only with sendmail and I remember that we had 
tiny problems to get it running with about every second setup back then. 
If it doesn't matter which POP/IMAP server you use I would recommend going 
with Dovecot.
