The contents of the BASE64 encoded data is somehow unparsable by the
underlying SASL layer. Ex. the MD5 hash is not really an MD5 hash. Or
there is a syntax error in the tokens, or ...

The XMPP request itself isn't malformed. It is the BASE64 encoded SASL
data that is wrong. Does the malformed-request regard also the SASL
layer data? It is not clear to me.
