This was helpful. I was thrown by the qpid-specific configuration in

I'm running Debian, which form some reason does not provide a top
level /etc/sasl2.conf to manage includes from other apps. The db sasl
looks at by default is /etc/sasldb2 (kinda strange location, IMO).

Once I included the guest user in that file, qpid authenticated
the connection successfully.

I'll have to rewire the default configuration from the Debian packages
but at least now I know what the heck is going on.
