R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com> added the comment:

The first argument to authenticate must be bytes.  This is not well documented.  It might also be a bug, since I'm not sure anyone has done a thorough audit of what should be bytes and what should be string in imaplib.

3.1 no longer gets bug fixes, so I'm removing it from versions.  Likewise I remove 3.4 since that applies only to changes that will *not* be put in 3.3 for some reason.
