(to add to the other good comments)

To be fair, and realistic, I don't see how 1.5 days of no response to a 
bug coming off the summer holidays, and in the midst of the aftermath of 
shipping two releases constitutes inattention or lack of interest on the 
part of *anyone* in the mozilla community.

Note, there are plenty of people watching the imap component QA address. 
But if an important bug doesn't get a response, it's easy to just ping 
someone.
