So, I am trying to produce a log of imapx:io regarding the part

first one here, hope can help.

the log shows the [GMail] folder in the list, thus the server works
pretty fine and returns the folders as expected. I'm afraid I'm not
able to fully debug the evolution(-data-server) 3.12.11, the IMAPx code
is evolving (and devolving) all the time, some bugs are fixed, some
added, I do not recall all of them, I only know there were similar
issues, though not the same. The few of latest are:

All landed for 3.16.x only. You can ask your distribution maintainers
to backport those patches to 3.12.11 of evolution-data-server,

Ok I could try to do that, if necessary.

it'll be probably easier to install a virtual machine with some
distribution which provides latest stable evolution (the current
version is 3.16.4, which is the version where one of the fixes from the
above bug landed). You'll be able to safely test whether the latest
version behaves any better than your distribution version without
breaking your environment.

Hi Milan,
I have set up a VM with evo and the problem does not happen
there. The account I set up in is exactly the same as the one in 3.12.11 (I manually copied each 
option). The only difference I am aware of is that the "working" Evo has only 1 account defined, the "faulty" 
one has more accounts. Just to be sure the problem was not related to having more than 1 account active (and 
don't want to set up tons of parameters in multiple accounts (By the way: it were nice to have a feature to 
backup the configuration of one (or more) account(s) and restore in another Evo installation)), I disabled 
all other accounts in the faulty Evo, and the problem still occurs there.

by the way, this misbehaviour is quite unexpected, if you didn't change
anything on the evolution(-data-server) version side. Is it not
possible that the distribution pushed an evolution-data-server update?

As far as I can understand the answer is no: the evolution-data-server package I have installed is called v. 
3.12.11-0ubuntu1, which (according to [1]) was released on 2015-02-23

Now, is there anything else I can try? Maybe setting up evo 3.12.11 in a new user account (as Patrick 
suggested) in the same machine of the faulty one could help to understand if something is related to some 
processes, file system issues, or don't know what else...

Thank you very much,
