Google Desktop Search won't Login to Gmail when I give it the correct account details. The same credentials work in Gmail and across the Google system, but not in GDS. What is going on?

Every time I Click a page on the local GDS server, it tells me that there is a problem that GDS needs my help to fix. When I click the link it prompts me to give my credentials again.
I've tried to reinstall with a few different versions and all are showing the same problem.
I've also changed my password on the account and tried the new password, didn't work.
I've also tried a bunch of permutations of the login with capitalization and including "@gmail.com" after the username, to no avail.
I had this same problem the last time I installed GDS about 6 months ago, but I forget how I fixed it then. A few hours searching Google and groups has yielded nothing, so I'm thinking this is a problem that is a result of something stupid on my part.
