I noticed that CM starts very slowly during the last few runs. So I tried to
find out why. It turns out that the slowdown was due to a connection it

** IMAP error on imap.mail.yahoo.com: stream error
** IMAP connection broken
[01:00:20] IMAP< Error logging in to imap.mail.yahoo.com
(the error was temporary and server side)

Investigating further:

1. Add an IMAP account (tested with GMAIL one)
'Get Mail' checks for new messages on this account = enabled.

2. Add another IMAP account (tested with YAHOO one)
'Get Mail' checks for new messages on this account = disabled.

3. 'Check for new mail on start-up' = disabled.

4. Quit CM leaving the selected folder to be some of the folders of the first

5. Restart CM

Connection only to the Gmail account.

Network log shows that CM logs in the Yahoo account too (see attachment).
Seems to happen only with IMAP accounts (not with POP3).

Additional note (can be filed in a separate bug if needed):

The program windows does not to show up if there is some slow down in
connectivity (as explained in the beginning). This is incorrect behavior: The
main window must show regardless of network problems.
