Sylpheed hangs on 'reading messages from pop.gmail.com'. I tried to do a
few diagnostics, like attaching gdb to the 'hung' sylpheed and get the

Single stepping until exit from function __read_nocancel,
which has no line number information.
Program received signal SIGINT, Interrupt.
It seems that __read_nocancel never exits, a problem which I have seen
reported in several other programs.
I believe this problem re-appeared (I reported it a long time ago), after
installing the Thawte certificates to pass the gmail authentication. The
hangs do not seem to appear if I remove the certificates, and 'Ok' the
initial error message.
I'd appreciate suggestions,
