Section Appendix A says:

   C:           (chunk 1)
   C: 0x44      (LC=no,DC=yes,CT=sd)
   C: 0x00 0x11 (chunk length=11)

It should say:

   C:           (chunk 1)
   C: 0x44      (LC=no,DC=yes,CT=sd)
   C: 0x00 0x12 (chunk length=18)


Apparently, there is an inconsistency in chunk 1 of the first request block, closely related to errata ID 2830, and this has nurtured my suspicion reported there that perhaps the 'mechanism data length' field has been added late in the draft history, without sufficient care.

The first chunk data field has the following components:
SASL mechanism "PLAIN" ... 1 + 5 octets
10 octets of SASL PLAIN data ... 2 + 10 octets
This sums up to (decimal) 18 octets, or 0x12.

[Separated out other errata from this one. This was the last erratum originally reported in 1009.]
