Description of problem:
Since upgrading to mutt-1.4.1-9, I haven't been able to connect to my
IMAP server. More specifically, I'm connecting to the imaps port. The
SSL connection goes fine, and mutt prompts me for my password. I enter
it, and the status line says "Authenticating (SASL)..." for a really
long time. Eventually, this goes away to be replaced with "Selecting
inbox...". mutt never gets past this stage.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to an imaps://.../ mailbox from mutt

Actual Results:  The program stays at "Selecting inbox..." forever.

Expected Results:  A message list from the inbox.

Additional info:

Running mutt-1.4.1-8 works fine, as does recompiling mutt-1.4.1-9 with
the sasl2 patch disabled.

The server is running dovecot on a Debian system.

Please try again with 1.4.1-10, and reopen this bug if you find that
it still doesn't work (it should).
Comment 2 Bernhard Weisshuhn 2004-11-11 06:13:05 EST
The same thing happens to me.
mutt-1.4.1-10 from fredora core 3, connecting to a cyrus-imapd-2.1.16
(not fedora).
SSL or TLS do not seem to make a difference.
If the correct password is given, mutt hangs.
If a wrong password is given, the authentication fails correctly, but
trying to reopen the inbox (typing 'c', '!' and enter) then segfaults.

Bug should be reopened, imho.
