--- Comment #3 from RJVB <rjvbertin at gmail.com> ---
Some feedback:
I am currently testing a configuration without explicit, timed check for new
mail in my gmail inbox, relying instead on the IDLE feature for being notified
about incoming mail in that mailbox (since the IDLE feature cannot be
deactivated anyway).

Since configuring things that way, I have had no more errors about too many
simultaneous connections on that account. I do get kwallet unlock request for
reading the credentials to the account from time to time (the wallet is set to
close after 2min). (Personally I'd store an encrypted copy of the password in
RAM to prevent that, but that's a different issue.)

Note that this is after downgrading to KDE 4.13.3, which reduced but did not
eliminate the simult. connections lock-out issue.

Curiously, I also no longer get a dialog for entering the actual gmail password
anew. I used to get that after the kwallet dialog had gone undetected for too
long (?), as if there's a timeout on the request. I haven't had time to
confirm, but it seems that this (always?) preceded the lock-out issue.
I think I still observed that behaviour in KDE 4.13.3, so after downgrading but
before removing the timed poll from the gmail inbox.
