thanks for trying it and letting me know.
it turns out to be most likely a known issue spooking through gmail for
about 9 days, which only affects a subset of imap users. they seem to
have a fix, but only be able to roll it out to small sets of affected
users at a time, which has been the official status for a week, now.
See forum threads ,  and known issues list , where one can
report being affected.
it seems i have to live with accessing my mail by the browser for some
 http://support.google.com/mail/bin/static.py?hl=en&page=known_issues.cs (under IMAP)
