Bug Description

I use Thunderbird with GMail's IMAP service. In a Thunderbird session I often get a dialog pop up that says "Login Failed" and that it could not connect to imap.gmail.com. If I click the Retry button everyone works fine.

I have used Evolution with GMail's IMAP for many years and never had this issue.
