This is a test.
  
Would it perhaps make sense to ping for notifications before the first set of data is loaded, rather than after? I suspect this might be happening because I have a high number of contacts.
  
@Sean Tilley can you check if you have an index called item_uid_unseen in the item table?
  
If it does not please try to execute this sql:
ALTER TABLE item ADD INDEX uid_item_unseen (uid, item_unseen);
