It's a change in behavior that breaks old configuration and may not be
compatible with some less configurable clients (windoze)... It's
important if it's going to be fixed at all. If it's not going to be
fixed then it should be closed because if we release an imap with changed
behavior it won't matter anymore.

I think that might be a good idea, he was one of those we've been trying
to reach. Around or not, I think a NMU of a release critical bug at this
point is not unwarranted.
