Description

Simple attempt (in irb):

require 'net/smtp'
smtp = Net::SMTP.new('server', 587)
mtp.enable_starttls()
smtp.start()

NoMethodError: undefined method success?' for "200 dummy reply code":String
from /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/lib/ruby/2.0.0/net/smtp.rb:949:in

The problem is with the critical() method, the method returns the "dummy response" if there already was a pending error.
The fix is to replace the line of:

  return '200 dummy reply code' if @error_occured

to

  return Response.parse('200 dummy reply code') if @error_occured

Alternatively, one can have a "canned" dummy response instance, but that may be unnecessary considering this only happens in error path.
