[New-bugs-announce] [issue26543] imaplib noop Debug

Stephen Evans report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Stephen Evans:

With the imaplib.Debug=3 (or greater) imaplib.noop() will crash if there are any untagged responses present.

The _dump_ur() function has not been converted to expect bytes in the lambda variable x[1]. An abbreviate example of the 'dict' parameter would be:

{'READ-WRITE': [b''], 'FETCH': [b'1 (FLAGS (\\Recent NonJunk))']}

This _dump_ur() function needs converting to Python 3.x, say, change the map/lambda line to:
  l = map(lambda x:'%s: %r' % (x[0], x[1]), l)

A sample crash inducing session produced by the attached file (using another email client to produce untagged responses for NOOP):

  20:01.23 imaplib version 2.58
  20:01.23 new IMAP4 connection, tag=b'LMHB'
Traceback (most recent call last):

    l = map(lambda x:'%s: "%s"' % (x[0], x[1][0] and '" "'.join(x[1]) or ''), l)
