That should probably be unrelated to the Agent, and won't be fixed
during this development cycle.  To fix this properly, Gnus would have to
maintain a transaction log (on disk) and update the IMAP server in a
"transactional" manner, instead of (as it does now) just sending the
data to the server on Group exit.

Some IMAP servers are really, really slow at doing expunging on big
folders.  They basically keep all the messages in one big file, and they
have to rewrite the entire file to delete a message, if I understand

Does setting `nnimap-expunge' to nil make exit fast?  In that case,
that's the problem, and if not, I can try do debug...

Huh.  Hm...  Actually, can you try the `nnimap-expunge' setting for
this, too?
