This won't work :-) There is (and always have been) a minimum limit on how 
often folders can be synced in Akonadi server which is hardcoded to 5 minutes.  
So even when you configured less than that, the folder was never synced more 
often than every 5 minutes. I just changed the default value in resourcebaserc 
to 5 in KDE 4.13 not to fool users :-)
