The error happens because the broker is configured to NULL and the
client is using PLAIN, I guess.

You'll want to take the latest Malamute master, as this API call
changed. There's now a separate call to set plain authentication on
the client.

To use NULL security, remove the security section from the config
file, and don't set any plain security at the client side.
