kdepim-runtime-17.04.0 - Gmail login hotfix

Hi all,

if you are shipping KDE Application 17.04, please include the following patch 
in your packages:


It fixes authentication with Gmail (so it can potentially affect many users). 
In 17.04 we switched to using the native XOAUTH2 authentication for Gmail 
(authenticates via web interface with 2FA support, no need for application-
specific password anymore), but a bug sneaked into the final release that causes 
the new authentication configuration to not be migrated so the IMAP resource 
cannot log in and thus receive any emails.

Thanks a lot and sorry for the inconvenience,

Daniel Vrátil
