This is obviously bad :-). Your error boils down to this:

>     imapobj.noop()

And this situation is EXACTLY what I have attempted to address in:
  ce8471a0 2011-09-12 IMAP IDLE cleanup(5): Really discard connections w...

which has the following lines right after than noop():

except imapobj.abort():
    self.ui.warn('Attempting NOOP on dropped connection %s' % \
    self.parent.releaseconnection(imapobj, True)

Are you using a 'next' branch newer than that (Sep 12)? If yes, the
Exception catching is obviously not working and we will have to debug
