[opensuse] IMAP issues on openSUSE 12.3

I am trying to get IMAPd running on openSUSE 12.3. At this point, I just
want it to serve $HOME/Maildir folders to clients like evolution on

Oddly, I had it working. I decided to do a reboot to ensure that
everything came back. It did not.

When evolution starts, I see that a imapd(143)/localhost port connection
is made. evolution then complains:

(evolution:4441): evolution-mail-WARNING **: Failed to refresh folder:
IMAP command failed: Error in IMAP command received by server.
(more of these...)
(evolution:4441): evolution-mail-WARNING **: Failed to refresh folder:
folder://1366192940.32174.4%40acme.pacific/INBOX/Customers/Applanix: Server
unexpectedly disconnected: Fatal error: TOO MANY CONSECUTIVE PROTOCOL

Also, when I give evolution the password for imap (current user's
password on localhost) it complains that the password is wrong. Which it
is not.

I am not using ssl, and passwords are not encrypted. The various log
files I have looked at did not shed any light.

I am curious why the IP address in the status listing is
[::ffff:] and not [

Odd that it worked before a reboot.]

It is sooo long since I last set up an openSUSE machine for this that I
have certainly forgotten something...
