@RedGrittyBrick - yes, I tried that, but TB still seems to make no attempt to use the HTTP proxy for IMAP.

comment Terminal with session management and scrollback OS X
iTerm2 (code.google.com/p/iterm2) has some wacky built-in tmux support (code.google.com/p/iterm2/wiki/TmuxIntegration) -- maybe that will help? I use iTerm2, but not the built-in tmux; the built-in limitations were more cumbersome to me than the tmux "limitations" it was trying to overcome.

comment Why is there an auto-connect delay to a hidden wireless network - Ubuntu 9.10
A late addition to this thread. Although my script above works, I eventually stopped needing it because I eventually stopped the hidden SSID altogether, thanks to articles like this one, that convinced me that hidden SSIDs were a waste of time: howtogeek.com/howto/28653/…
