I don´t have any GMail account anymore as I do not believe in the ethical 
integrity of the company behind it.

I use Dovecot for POP3 and for Fairphone also IMAP on the server and this 
works well. I have Dovecot with IMAP on laptop for a while as well and it 
worked well enough.

I bet that may be in bug tracker already, but if not, I suggest you put it 
there. You can help by triage gmail related bugs in the bug tracker, find 
duplicates, close those that are still related to ancient versions with a note 
that if it happens on new version as well, it is possible to reopen it.
