[Bug 2462] Re: mail-notifcation hogging the CPU polling for GMail

I'm having the same problem, not with GMail but with my university's
mail.  It sometimes takes up between 70-90% CPU, and at that time it
doesn't appear when new mail is received.  Ethereal does not tell me
that it is making a lot of requests though.  If I kill it and restart,
usage goes back down to between 1-2% and the icon appears when new mail
arrives. Network is connected, mail server is working.  It is after a
hibernate (although I can't be sure it doesn't happen before hibernate,
as I'm almost always working post-hibernation).
