I'm totally out of my depth here, so can only throw out some thoughts that may 
or may not help.  When I set up the connection to my imap server I 
specified -X.  When I list the bookmark that doesn't show up, but I can 
launch X applications during a connection, so I assume that it was read and 
stored somewhere.  I don't know how you test for whether the other parameters 
are working - compression, for instance.

One thing did make me wonder - your command specifies an application to use.  
Does it try to launch that before getting your password?  If so, have you 
tried using ssh with passphrase and keychain?

That's about all I can think of for now.  As I said, I only use it at a fairly 
simplistic level, with -X, but I use it with an without keychain, on 
different boxes.
