I surely believe that there are some timeout issues occasionally with
Gmail and don't dispute what you are suggesting but in the past two
days, since I have turned off TLS, Evolution has not hung on my IMAP
server. I recognize that it isn't possible to use Gmail/IMAP without SSL
but I strongly suspect that some of your problems are rooted in SSL/TLS
with Evolution.

I may play around with adding my gmail account to Evolution after I go
another day without SSL/TLS in Evolution to see if it hangs but it
hasn't hung on me in the last day and half since I turned it off.
