The "Verify" button in the password editor can only be used to compare
the (hashed) userPassword attribute. This is done by applying the same
hash algorithm and using the same salt found in the existing password.
This only works for "real" passwords stored in userPassword attribute.

When using SASL you need to run the SASL flow by creating a new
connection and selecting your used SASL mechanism on the 2nd wizard
page. Currently only DIGEST-MD5 and GSSAPI are implemented.
