There are cases where a client might desire to send a bind DN with a
SASL password. The protocol specification does not preclude this. The
(new) protocol specification does say servers are to ignore any bind DN
presented, but IIRC some don't ignore it.
I would suggest that specifying simple Bind arguments when SASL is
selected (by lack of -x) only lead to a warning, not an error (unless
there is an override flag).
Filed ITS#5753 which trys to make it possible to explicitly specify -D
together with SASL bind but still assume -x (simple bind) automagically
for a single -D.
