bug#23592: 25.0.94; Emacs (and/or Gnus interaction) not resolving hostna

Subject: bug#23592: 25.0.94; Emacs (and/or Gnus interaction) not resolving hostnames
Date: Sat, 21 May 2016 04:38:23 -0400


It appears that Gnus doesn't remember that a previously opened
IMAP server was opened and accessible.

I started up Gnus and it failed to access my IMAP mailbox.  The
*Messages* buffer contained:

Warning: Opening nnimap server on aol...failed: ; Unable to open server
nnimap+aol due to: imap.aim.com/993 No address associated with hostname

In the *Group* buffer, I then type "^" (gnus-group-enter-server-mode)
and it shows:

     {nnimap:aol} (denied)

I then type "O" (gnus-server-open-server) and Gnus connects to the

     {nnimap:aol} (opened)

The *Messages* buffer contains:

Opening connection to imap.aim.com via tls...
auth-source-search: found 1 CACHED results matching (:max 1 :host ("aol" 
"imap.aim.com") :port (993 "imaps" "imap" "993" "143") :user "nyc4bos" :require 
(:user :secret) :create t)
auth-source-netrc-saver: found previous run for key ~/.authinfo.gpg 
db8969e569f4db5b74c76ff5fa70d316, returning
Opening connection to imap.aim.com...done

The *imap-log* buffer contains:

02:39:24 [imap.aim.com] (inhibited)
02:39:24 [imap.aim.com] 160 CAPABILITY

1. Unlike Bug# , this error message says:

        imap.aim.com/993 No address associated with hostname

   which is a valid,FQDN.

2. Why does a subsequent (gnus-server-open-server) command executed
   after a connection failure succeed in accessing the IMAP server?
   It is presumably using the same connection credentials (utilizing
   authsource.el) as when it failed.

   What is being done differently than when Gnus is first started?

3. After quiting Gnus (gnus-group-exit), and immediately restarting
   Gnus, I still get the "Unable to open server..." message.

   If it *just* connected to the server, why can't immediately
   connect again?  And since it subsequently connected successfully,
   why does it still warn "No address associated with hostname"
