I set up Mozilla to read my mail. The server uses MIT Kerberos and IMAP.
The dialog box pops up with "The Current Command Did not succeed. The Mail Server Responded: Please Login First" and when I dismiss it, it pops up again. It happens six times on startup, and twice whenever it tries to check mail thereafter.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a mail account, specifying a user name
2.try to collect the messages
3.enter a password

Actual Results:  
Modal dialog box pops up _six _times

Expected Results:  
Login box restored (with a cancel button)
When it fails, it should tell you at most once.
I believe that my password is correct and my kerberos tickets are valid -- mozilla mail is working for me with this server on a separate client machine, and I can access my webmail. I'm not bugging the fact that I can't log in, just the fact that the modal dialog box is somewhat repetitive.

I haven't seen this in a while. I still get repetitive dialog boxes (when the 
connection is lost or times out, I get double boxes telling me so,) but that's 
really a different bug.
