Gmail scopes automatically invalidated when a user changes the password requiring re-authentication 

I stumbled upon this particular oddity a few weeks ago when a client asked me to resolve an issue.
It turns out that if your application leverages gmail scopes, those scopes are automatically invalidated when a user changes the password on that gmail account. The client in question had changed their password which triggered an authorization prompt. Something to watch out for.
Nice highlight from Dimu Designs, the source thread is open for other ‘gotchas’.
