tcpdump of imap problem

I'm debugging some odd issues between thunderbird and exchange wrt IDLE. I've attached a packet capture that seems to show two issues - one is what I believe to an Exchange bug, and another I believe to be - an odd TBird behavior at the least, or possibly a bug: tbird has less than a second between IDLE and IDLE DONE.

This is how it goes:

10:53:51.48 C: IDLE
10:53:51.48 S: IDLE accept
10:53:51.52 C: ack (tcp)
10:53:51.64 C: IDLE DONE    # less than 2/10ths of a second later, tbird bug??
10:53:51.68 S: ack (tcp)
10:54:51.64 S: IDLE DONE accept # 60 seconds later! exchange bug?

For the exchange side of things I've asked our Exchage admins to push this up to MS, but as I said, I think there's a tbird bug here as well.

Thunderbird: 3.1.10.

Oh, I forgot to mention - this is going through stunnel so that I can debug and see the packets. Port 9999 on is the server (both hosts are localhost).

Are we running an other url after the IDLE Done? Or not? IMAP protocol logging from the client is more informative for us -

and you can add ",timestamp" to the log modules
