Manual, automatic, doesn't matter, after a minute or so of syncing, Gmail force closes and will occasionally do it when I'm just looking at my inbox. I've tried clearing Gmail's app data, I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the Gmail app updates, I've tried re-adding my account, and finally I did a factory reset, (didn't have much in the way of customization invested in this phone, no big deal).

Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks.
Hmmm. Totally stock, no customizations since you did ht factory reset, and yet it does it on all types of connections. No apps installed, nothing, straight OOB, right? you said pretty much, so let's go the whole nine yards and make it completely stock, and only add your Google account, and nothing else, and then try to sync.

Mind going into Settings --> About phone and telling me what version you have under System version? Just the part up to XT... is fine....

After this, I'm probably going to tell you again to perform a factory reset to test it again - but I really, really *REALLY* think this is an odd issue.
