I am using IMAP and I have been for many, many years and I've migrated
this particular setup from at least FC6 to now F10. I've got a LOT of
mail and a LOT of folders but I'm not having 'hanging forever trying to
sync' - It is not a problem that is endemic in Evolution.

I'm well aware of that. If it was endemic, no doubt it would be fixed by now. However it's been happening to me for years on two different machines connected to two different networks (to be fair, it does tend to happen less than it used to).

I also get extreme slowness when opening very large folders, especially on Gmail via IMAP. Evo spends a lot of time updating its state, in fact I sometimes see two *overlapping* updates, apparently because the first one takes so long (in fact it can sit at 0% apparently forever) that it runs out the polling interval and starts another one. This doesn't happen with Tbird on the same machine, network and account setup. Tbird never takes more than a few seconds to open one of these folders.
