Geary network Account Problem with Gmail

Hi, almost every morning, my Geary instance complains about an Account Problem and wants me to click the Retry button.

I recently did some testing of Gmail using Python sockets. The script logged into Gmail IMAP and started IDLE. Every 25 minutes, the script would restart IDLE (in the usual manner for IDLE connections). That worked fine for many hours or days. But sometimes, after 8 or 9 hours of IDLE, Gmail IMAP would drop the connection with:

* BYE Session expired, please login again.

I don’t know if this was during an IDLE period or right after one ended. But maybe that is related to the “Account Problem” issue in Geary?
