Hi all,

I have similar issue today! But roundcube wasn't the source of error. It
was my dovecot imap server. After thunderbird stopped with an error during
connecting to my imap server I get doubtfully.
I take a look at the imap logs ->

dovecot: Jul 07 14:01:11 Error: imap-login: No authentication sockets found
dovecot: Jul 07 14:01:11 Error: child 6373 (login) returned error 89

As workaround I restart the imap server. Now I have no errors.
