I don't know how either are polling the database, but shouldn't RoundCube
only be querying a maximum of the "rows per page" setting under Personal
Settings each time you navigate to or in a folder?  I hate to think it is
retrieving thousands of messages and then only showing me 40 each time I
touch something...

You can have a partially-persistent imap connection if imapproxy is used on
the backend, or are you talking Apache's not-persistence?
