Could do that, but then it seems like imaplib2 is not shutting down
their reader/writer threads properly when it receives a logout(). At
least there is still some IMAP activity going on, even after a logout()
finished. So that would require investigation in any case.

I'll see if I can come up with a patch during the next week. This week
probably not.
