Mmm, with IDLE support it should be pretty consistent.  And enabling [if
supported] CONDSTORE extensions on the server may help as well.

But I think that only helps with messages; I don't think it does
anything about subscribe/unsubscribe events.

I'd enable telemetry logging on your IMAP server and induce [or wait
for] the bug. 
Thank you both for the insight.

Yes. I noticed that so at least it's not hard to recover. Forcing a reset could be dangerous considering Evo could be intimately connected to other sockets during which time it's hanging on others...In my case it's not inconsistant at all. I can count on it hanging at 0%. I think Adam's suggestion of turning some additional logging on is likely the only way to "see" more info.

Thanks again. I'll reply if I find anything.
