we are aware of the problem...

the only way to fix this is to completely rewrite the imap module which
we plan to do as soon as we get enough time. hopefully we will get the
chance to do this for the 1.6 development cycle. someone has recently
volunteered to take on this rewrite a week or two ago (you might want to
read evolution@ archives in addition to evolution-hackers@ archives to
figure out who it was).

different abstractions? I dunno. depends on what slownesses you are
talking about.
