usually what i do in such situations is move the syncing to a slot and then 
call that slot with either a zero timer (so as soon as the event loop gets hit 
again) or a reasonably short timeout[1] from the places that a sync should be 

that way if multiple syncs get called in a row (or, at least, within the 
timeout period) you get just one sync instead of repeated syncs.

btw, have you tested the performance impact of this with large wallets?

[1] what "reasonably short" means is very much up to the exact application 
being considered.
