Are you saying that you _could_ use ~/.authinfo with the same IMAP
server and with different user names with Gnus 5.8.8?  I can hardly
imagine that, because the code of `nnimap-open-connection' is the same
in 5.8.8 and 5.10.2.

Anyway, I've committed the abovementioned patch to CVS now.

Bye, Reiner.
