I've just upgraded from RC10 to RC12 today, and this one user no longer
has a problem. Of 303 users, only 1 user had the error, and upgrading
to RC12 fixed the problem for them with no other changes.
BTW, the one user did eventually complain after a week of not being able
to get their mail. Some people are a bit slow to complain I guess.
