What "hack" is in place?  And can you identify what "places in the IMP
codebase" do this?  Or at least what version of IMP and UW-IMAP this is

MY logins are fast.  Never seen any such problem related to UW-IMAP.
But maybe I have a different "hack" in place, or even just a different
version of UW-IMAP running?

Might be easier to upgrade to the latest codebase and see if someone
else has already fixed the problems.  I must admit, I run the CVS
RELENG, so I've always got the latest fixes, but I've been running it
for a long time through the last several releases, and never noticed
any problems like you mention.
