Your understanding should be correct. Actual IMAP logins happen once or
more per page view. There will be many more of those. Your user above is
displaying strange behavior. If you find that the user isn't actually
logging in at those times, I could look around the code.

IIRC, the user needs to click on the signout link for this to happen,
and I don't think a lot of users do that.
