I thought I was the only one having this problem. Seems, I'm not alone
;-) Until recently I was using the email address,


to send patches. Last week, I got the same error message you did and
tried to fix it in various ways but failed in my attempt; got fed up
and switched to another mail address I owned (the current one) using
which I'm able to send patches (surprise !). Fortune for me as, it
wasn't a big deal. I think this is an issue with Google.

(I still don't know when I'm going to get the error for this one. I
don't have ideas to change this one.)
