Somehow related:
When booting the system, if I do not log in immediately, I get a
"Failed to lookup credentials: Failed to get password from GOA: timeout" message.

I'd like a auto-reconnect feature at evolution. It could be configurable, in the case of timeout it could - according to user's settings
- either keep trying
- or prompt to the user "what shall I do"
- or just throw an error message

There are some somehow related bug reports, eg
https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/46626
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1259434

but I guess, a cheap, but effective hack would be to make evolution just a little more tolerant against net connection loss by trying to autoconnect more patiently.
