I saw hangs like this sometimes when I was working on the imaplib2 
branch. In fact, that's the failure mode I saw when Sebastian forgot to 
apply "patch 5", the one that removed read(), readline(), and 
_read_upto() from the IMAP4_SSL class. (So don't use any commit before 
197030da1aad3a4d5b0ae343fcf0feeced077e5d. I was already convinced this 
was an imaplib2-related bug.)

But I see that neither of these connections is SSL (and anyhow the 
commit got merged).

Is this maybe related to the weird read() implementation in UsefulIMAP4 
( Can you maybe try to delete that and see what happens?

I'm in #offlineimap if you're willing to try a bunch of other 
hare-brained ideas to try to get to the bottom of this.
