When I change my Mailbox password (through Hover)
The next time I go into Thunderbird,  it gives that message "Server <>  has disconnected.  The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem."   instead of prompting for the password again (like it would do before, when no password was being set at all).
David says that this is happening because is dropping the connection when the auth attempt fails, and that our IMAP code is kinda busted in that situation.

What do we want to do about this?

Mike, you want to try with this patch? It's fairly safe, as last minute changes go.

Looks good. Now the question is, what do we do with this?

Are we effectively past the point where something could get slipped into beta?

I'll let Standard8 make the call about beta/final.

I doubt that it's only hover affected by this issue, so there is a more general upside to taking this patch.
