I believe that I've read all of them since I am subscribed to this list,
but well, probably I may have missed something.

Can you provide a link to those "some bugfixes"? Or are you talking about
these ones:


If so, these fixes are related to the change of the User-Agent header, as
far as I understand (and the title of the ticket says). But can they be
related to the scenario that I'm thrown back to the login screen in the
middle of composing a message after say 10-20 mins. of composing? Can a
browser change the User-Agent header even WHILE composing a message at all?
And does the User-Agent header play a role in this situation at all..?

Sorry if I should be asking silly questions, I'm just trying to understand.

And if you should be talking about other fixes which I may have missed -
then a link would come quite handy.

Ah, THAT sounds good at least.

Same here. Sometimes I can work for hours without hitting any problem,
sometimes I'm hitting three or four in a row within less than 15 minutes.

BTW: Which mail client are you using? The text part of your message
contained the ugly "Kammquoting" Outlook Express was, uh, "famous" for since
ages. I had to manually repair it to make the quotes in this message
correctly readable.
