I'm getting the same crash with:

The crash is coming from libsasl's common.c line 1924, where it's trying
to call through the log_cb function pointer. However, log_cb is 0xfa (or
some other value that's definitely not the address of a function).
log_cb is set by the call to _sasl_getcallback() earlier (line 1788),
and it turns out the problem is that conn->callbacks points to corrupted
memory, and _sasl_getcallback() happens to find the right bytes to make
it think that it's found a log callback function.

Subversion's libsvn_ra_svn\cyrus_auth.c svn_ra_svn__do_cyrus_auth()
(line 732) looks fishy to me, although I certainly haven't looked into
it in detail... The callbacks[] array, which is passed ot
new_sasl_ctx(), then to libsasl's sasl_client_new(), is a
local/automatic variable, and it goes out of scope and the memory is
available for reuse after the function exits. However, new_sasl_ctx()
adds the sasl_ctx to a pool and registers a cleanup function for it.
When the pool is destroyed, libsasl wants to use that callbacks[] array
during the cleanup, but that memory's already filled with other stuff.
Shouldn't callbacks[] be allocated on the heap somehow, rather than on
the stack?
