This is what I have from you earlier as a response to the backtrace:
(So it looks like the hang would still be there, even with the cancel
patch (and in 3.2.x, master)! Should I reopen 660615?)

Thanks for a bug report. The backtrace shows the POP3 is waiting for a
greeting reply of your server, which takes long for some reason. But
looking into the backtrace more closely I see that the POP3 provider
doesn't use the cancellable into subsequent calls, thus it cannot be
cancelled on user's wish. I see it's still the same in 3.2.0 and git
master, thus I'm confirming this.
