Description Jose Plans 2006-08-10 12:03:16 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #171528 +++

Description of problem:
Mutt segfaults when attempting to authenticate to an (any) imap server. The
easiest way to test seems to set the spoolfile variable in .muttrc as follows:

set spoolfile=imaps://server:993/INBOX

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
% rpm -qa mutt cyrus-sasl\*

How reproducible:
Seems like always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start mutt
2. attach with gdb -p to process, continue
3. login
Actual results:

Expected results:
Obviously shouldn't die on me :)

Additional info:
(gdb) conti

Seems to work if I force imap_authenticators to be just login, plain or both in
.muttrc like this:

set imap_authenticators="login:plain"

While it segfaults before asking for username if imap_authenticators is set to

Closing as a duplicate. I can't reproduce this on the imap servers I have access
to. :/

Do those imap servers allow authentication methods besides AUTH=PLAIN or
AUTH=LOGIN? (telnet to port 143, issue the command ". CAPABILITY")

No. So that's a starting point.

From User-Agent: XML-RPC

mutt- has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue.  If
these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in
this bug report.
