New submission from Kristján Valur Jónsson <kristjan at ccpgames.com>:

the SMPT.getreply() method doesn't check for socket.error when doing its 
readline() call.  We now check for connection reset and others that can 
occur here and properly close.  This is to comply with the documentation 
that doesn't specify socket.error as part of the exceptions raised.
