Hack to fix racyness

The KMail AccountWizard can fail with: "Could not convert value of setting 'AccountIdentity' to required type."

This happens for me in a fairly slow VM (one core, slow disk). But there happened very reliably.

The reason appears to be that Accountwizard's Resource::instanceCreateResult is called too early before the resource is fully created. 

   QDBusInterface iface(QStringLiteral("org.freedesktop.Akonadi.Resource.") + m_instance.identifier(), QStringLiteral("/Settings"));

isValid but the interface does not provide all Methods. The debug output surrounding this is:

    org.kde.pim.accountwizard: Setting up  "AccountIdentity"  for agent  "akonadi_imap_resource_12"
    org.kde.pim.accountwizard: Did not find D-Bus method:  "setAccountIdentity"  available methods are:
    org.kde.pim.accountwizard: "destroyed(QObject*)"
    org.kde.pim.accountwizard: "destroyed()"
    org.kde.pim.accountwizard: "objectNameChanged(QString)"
    org.kde.pim.accountwizard: "deleteLater()"
    org.kde.pim.accountwizard: "_q_reregisterTimers(void*)"
    org.kde.pim.accountwizard: "_q_serviceOwnerChanged(QString,QString,QString)"

Version does not really match. It was with accountwizard 0.2 from the current KDE Neon devedition gitstable ( 4:16.12.3+p16.04+git20170310.0110-0 ).

Attached Hack fixes the Problem for me but is of course not a real fix as it just adds a sleep before accessing the resource interface.

The problem still persists in accountwizard 4:17.08.2+p16.04+git20171013.0400-0 from the current KDE Neon devedition gitstable. I haven't tested if the patch still fixes the issue.

Is this still an issue?

Just happened to me when I attempted to add another account from g-suite (custom domain).
