I did t his.

I can confirm the following:

If the CAPA command is given SOME of the time the server connection fails 
to close after the QUIT command.  Under these conditions, the pop3 proxy 
passes the commands for the next session(s) without filtering the 
email.  It is moderately reproducible.

I also have tow cases under 1.0 where this occurred even with very simple 
pop3 commands sequences, but I have been unable to crisply reproduce this.
