[Evolution] can not close evolution while it is pinging the IMAP server

    hello list,

I am running evolution 2.8.3. I connect to an IMAP server at work to get my email. When I am at home I can not directly contact the IMAP server since it is behind a firewall. I need to connect with VPN first. Sometimes VPN drops the connection and I get thrown back out of the firewall. The IMAP server becomes inaccessible. Sometimes evolution is doing something when this happens and it gets stuck in "pinging IMAP server" mode. Reconnecting via VPN does not help. I can't even quit evolution at this point and have to force quit it in gnome. Is this a known issue? Can I somehow prevent evolution from "pinging the IMAP server"?

Thanks, nick
