bug#14380: 24.3; `network-stream-open-tls' fails in some imap servers on


From: João Távora
Subject: bug#14380: 24.3; `network-stream-open-tls' fails in some imap servers on w32
Date: Fri, 10 May 2013 13:49:20 +0100

Here's a emacs -Q recipe:

    $ emacs -Q
    M-x eval-expression RET (setq gnus-select-method '(nnimap 
"imaps.mycompany.com")) RET
    M-x gnus

An error pops up:

    nnimap (imaps.mycompany.com) open error: ''gnutls-cli' is not recognized as 
an internal or external command,

In the *Message* buffer, we can see at at least one tls command succeeded

    Opening connection to imaps.mycompany.com via tls...
    gnutls.c: [1] (Emacs) GnuTLS library not found
    Opening TLS connection to `imaps.mycompany.com'...
    Opening TLS connection with `gnutls-cli --insecure -p 993 
imaps.mycompany.com'...failed
    Opening TLS connection with `gnutls-cli --insecure -p 993

    Opening TLS connection with `openssl s_client -connect

    Opening TLS connection to `imaps.mycompany.com'...done
    nnimap (imaps.mycompany.com) open error: ''gnutls-cli' is not recognized as 
an internal or external command,
    '.  Continue? (y or n)  n

This works fine, on the same server with linux.

My analysis and possible fix is as follows: The problem is that
`network-stream-open-tls' returns invalid information in its final form:

    (list stream
          (network-stream-get-response stream start eoc)
          (network-stream-command stream capability-command eoc)
          'tls)

This is turn is because code immediately preceding it

    ;; If we're using tls.el, we have to delete the output from
    ;; openssl/gnutls-cli.
    (when (and (null use-builtin-gnutls)
               eoc)
      (network-stream-get-response stream start eoc)
      (goto-char (point-min))
      (when (re-search-forward eoc nil t)
        (goto-char (match-beginning 0))
        (delete-region (point-min) (line-beginning-position))))

is not really doing what it says it's doing: it's not deleting enough
input, and the search for capabilities actually returns the IMAP
greeting.

This in turn is related to the CRLF lineendings that the function
`open-tls-stream' running under w32 only (in linux it doesn't happen)
inserts in the process buffer before the end of the tls handshake. The
code in `network-stream-open-tls' for getting rid of useless starting
output deletes up to the first CRLF (and apparently it should do so just
once, since other CRLF's are legitimate). But if fails and catches a
very early CRLF which is still part of the now useless TLS
handshake. The search performed by

    (network-stream-command stream capability-command eoc)

doesn't work. That said, a reasonable way to fix this might be adding a
line

    (delete-region (point-min) (point))

as the first form in the body of the `when'. This is because
`open-tls-stream' apparently guarantees that point will be left where
the tls handshake ended, as per its code snippet and comment:

    (if start-of-data
        ;; move point to start of client data
        (goto-char start-of-data))

Alternalively, make `open-tls-stream' do that itself in the end. I'm
doing just that with.

    (defadvice open-tls-stream (after dont-forget-to-erase-buffer-up-to-point 
activate)
      (delete-region (point-min) (point)))

Or maybe improve searches by `network-stream-get-response' or be smarter
when deleting output.

Here's the contents of the nnimap process buffer. Notice the CRLFs.
