I wonder if you would get different / better behavior by
writing a script / app to run on the server, which you
request from your PC.  For example, I had an issue with
my server holding too many open IMAP connections and
then my PC's Thunderbird would block.  I invoke a remote
command sequence with ssh, that finds the imap processes
in question and kills them off.
