No, almost anything that involves talking to the IMAP server.  I'm
sorry, I thought that was obvious from my previous post, but I see now
that it wasn't.

Believe it or not, I'm familiar with good bug reporting practice.  The
problem is that I don't know whether anyone's interested in looking at

say that it's been reproduced by others, though.
