Freenode, sasl, irssi & 14.1

After several years of successfully authenticating to Freenode with sasl I have been unable to do this with 14.1. An ssl connection is made but sasl simple does not send the password as expected and I have to complete the login manually.

21:23 -!- Irssi: SASL: auth loaded from /home/andrew/.irssi/sasl.auth
21:23 -!- Irssi: Connecting to [] port 7000

I have followed these directions (except for the tor details):

which is a little ironic as my own (former) web page on irssi is credited at the base Can anybody save me from my frustration, or at least tell me that there is a known problem with irssi under 14.1??

Never mind, looks like there are some Freenode issues atm:

The temporary solution has been to use PLAIN instead of DH-BLOWFISH and all is working well now
