The code is a bit convoluted, so I can't be sure without more time than I
want to spend on it, but I wouldn't expect it to try more than one auth
method. If you send your username and password with CRAM-MD5 and got an
error, why would you expect it to work with some other authentication
method? It's still the same credentials.
