To answer my own question, this was introduced in r64578 in ssl.py by
the addition of the suppress_ragged_eofs feature (seems to originate
with issue1251). While it is a change in the behavior of the ssl module,
the change falls in line with other file-like objects and their handling
of EOF, so the bug still falls to imaplib.

In other words, this bug appeared in 2.6 and 3.0, and is present in all
subsequent versions.
