My IMAPS server has an expired certificaton. If I start Thunderbird, there's a dialog where I can view, accept or reject the expired certification. If I let it timeout I cannot connect any more without restarting Thunderbird. After closing the timeout notification dialog, I click on the receive button to log in but a dialog appears saying that I cannot connect to the server and it's possible that I reached the maximum number of simultaneous connections. It I restart Thunderbird and I don't let it timeout again, everything goes fine.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Thunderbird
2. Wait for some minutes without accepting the expired certificate
3. Try to log in
Actual Results:  
Described in the details section.

Expected Results:  
It should just log in in the normal way. The alert of the simultaneous logins is obviously wrong, there are actually no connections.

Can you try a nightly? Invalid certs are handled quite differently so I doubt the same issue can be seen there.
Reporter could answer to comment #1, please?
