Grrr, someone should add this to the php manual. I guess this could help us
a lot because there are many cases where the c-client throws errors that
can't be silenced from within the php code.

This doesn't help because it won't silence messages from the c-client. They
are only added to the error stack but still thrown on the pages.

We do this to show any error messages from the imap server that are raised
on an imap action that we didn't catch inside the code.
