[docs] [issue11137] clarify use of imaplib IMAP4(_SSL) shutdown

John report at bugs.python.org

New submission from John <jh45dev at gmail.com>:

Attempting IMAP4_SSL.shutdown() after IMAP4_SSL.logout() throws an error because the socket is already closed. (I cannot test with plain IMAP4.)

Please add appropriate notice, perhaps under IMAP4.shutdown().

Perhaps something like "If you do not use open(), and do only login() and logout(), you do not need shutdown(), as logout() does it for you."
