Since both are v2.0.x there aren't any big differences in how they work.

Test if the difference is in authentication or non-authentication:

auth: imaptest user=XX pass=XX secs=120 seed=123 - select=0

non-auth: imaptest user=XX pass=XX secs=120 seed=123 logout=0

My guess is that it's authentication related.
