This is a dup of an earlier bug which still needs to be fixed. Note in the earlier bug and verified by me today is that a partial workaround is to uncheck "Automatically download any new messages". If that is unchecked while "check for new messages every minute" (biff) is on, if the server is down during the biff you won't get the dialog or the prompt for password. Biff will happen again when the connection is back up.
