libgmail login failure

P: n/a
There doesnt seem to be a reliable support channel for libgmail so i
figured this group might have some people who could help.

I have the latest version(from cvs) of,
and with python version 2.3.3. gmailfs
fails with a login error. I also tried a test login script and
it fails on logon also. I double-checked my
username/passwords as well trying to actually login
from the web and with two different accounts. They
both work but both fail with libgmail login attempts. I am not behind
any type of proxy or strange http firewall that I know of(wget works
fine w/o tweaking).
Here is the error from gmailfs. The last couple lines are identical if
I try the test login script:
[root@xxxx root]# mount -t
gmailfs /usr/local/bin/ /gmailtest -o
[root@xxxx root]# '/gmailtest' mount options: ['rw'] mount options:
{'username': 'x***', 'password': 'xxxx', 'fsna
me': 'tEsT1nG'}
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/local/bin/", line 1117, in ?

File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/", line
