Looking at the Cyrus SASL 2.1.22 sources (specifically the lib/common.c
file), once you call sasl_set_path() it changes the default path
callback from _sasl_getpath() (which looks into the registry) to
_sasl_getpath_simple(), which will simply return the value you provided.
 So it shouldn't look into any other paths than the one you explicitly set.
