Bug Description

After losing internet connection mail applet was unable to login to my gmail account and created a window with "RuntimeError in mail applet" message (see attached picture).
It keeped creating messages from time to time and I think it would keep doing that infite number of times, untill internet connection would be restored.
Task manager was full of error-window icons.
I usually work offline. So I had to disable alerts to get rid of continuesly appearing error messages. There should be a way not to repeat the message or maybe just repeat it in a tooltip.
AWN version: Avant Window Navigator 0.3.9-rewrite-bzr1802-karmic1-1
