Several dialogue windows

Here is a bug someone found in the portable version I made and I think its in the installed version too:

If you don't store your password, you are asked for it the first time you connect to your provider after having started Popman. After entering the password Popman tries to connect. If the connection times out without success, Popman tries again when the selected time has passed. For the new try it opens a new dialogue window to enter your password. And again, and again.
IMHO Popman should open only one dialogue window, not several.

The original thread is here:

The idea is to only save the password, when it has been used successfully for login. If PopMan saved the password although the connection failed (timed out), the password might be wrong and the wrong password would be used for all subsequent logins. The user would have to change the password manually to correct it.
