I suspect what happens is that a connection has been idle for to long, ad the connection dropped by the imap server. Which might cause some memory to be freed that is then accessed when I call noop().
So it would be (group)wise to ask the vendor (Novell)?
Zope and Groupwise are on different machines, so I don't think I can blame Groupwise. Imap servers are supposed to loose the connection after a set time. eg. 20 minutes.
It is most likely something that happens in the imap library. Perhaps a socket being freed and garbage collected, which I then try to access from the pool.
My connection pooling is just a thin wrapper around the standard imap library. So I guess I should try to find the problem there.
Looking at the code I see nothing that could help from figuring out some server problems or doing some remote healing.
Ok. I will need to do some deeper debugging. Nothing is more fun than debugging something with a 20 minutes timeout :-s
