Description of problem:
I tell evolution to remember my password. It does so for a while, and then on
startup or when it is auto checking for mail, it redisplays the dialog for the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start evolution and press Send/Receive
2.Enter password for account and check box to have password remembered
3.Recheck mail or exit and restart evolution.
Actual Results: Sometimes password is remembered for several executions.
Eventually, evolution will forget the password and request it again, either on
first request to send/receive, or on an auto mail check if interval checking is
Expected Results: Evolution should remember the password forever.
Same problem here.
It's probably receieving some sort of error on the connection at some point,
which causes it to forget the password. If you run `CAMEL_VERBOSE_DEBUG=1
evolution-mail` in a terminal and wait a few seconds for the components to be
able to register with oaf and then start evolution, do you get any output in the
terminal before your password is forgotten?
