I wrote Net::Google::AuthSub but I haven't used it for years and so it
may be very, very out of date.
In fact the link in the docs to Google's page about Authentication leads
to a 404 ... digging around leads to this page
"Important: AuthSub has been officially deprecated as of April 20, 2012.
It will continue to work as per our deprecation policy, but we encourage
you to migrate to OAuth 2.0 as soon as possible."
although according to the deprecation policy it should still work until
April 20th, 2015
Given that BadAuthentication theoretically means that it's working but
that the password's wrong I'd also guess that maybe app specific
password was the solution.
