It may be a bug but I'm not sure where it's coming from.  It may be that
nnimap-open-connection is not prioritizing auth-source over
nnimap-authinfo-file.  Can you make sure nnimap-authinfo-file is nil?
Does it still fail in that case?  Finally, check

(auth-source-pick "any server" "any port")

What does it return?  The log messages are impying auth-source is
checking ~/.authinfo.

If none of this helps, look in nnimap-open-connection and trace the
sequence of events, it's pretty clear how it happens.

In the authinfo file, where it's '993' currently:

machine imap.gmail.com login address@hidden password secret port 993

...but that's not the problem, I think.  Try setting
auth-source-hide-passwords to nil anyhow and redo the attempt to ensure
your password is correct.
