So there you have

c logout

and I got

a logout

to work as well.  But I might think that a testing doc can include this 
little tidbit, rather than do yet another search.  Since this is a 
Dovecot test doc, I also might think it would have POP3 testing 
instructions!  But I was happy to find the IMAP.  Now to figure out why 
RoundCube fails to login with the same user that I logged in via Telnet.

Thanks for the pointer.
