Hmm, i'm not sure what you mean here.  It only fetches the headers that
are new.  Or if the server is changing the UIDVALIDITY field, in which
case we must refetch all headers (as per rfc2060).

Now that y'all mention it, it seems that Evolution 1.2.2 occasionally
takes an inordinately long time (circa 10 seconds) when I try to view
new messages that have arrived in large (500-5000 messages) IMAP
folders, and I don't think I saw this before. When I've noticed this,
local CPU and network traffic were minimal, and the server CPU was

Is this a known problem? And if not, is there a good way to turn on IMAP
debugging? If not, I will re-learn the magic for decrypting IMAPS
streams and see if I can figure out what is happening.
