You could disable "Scan for new mail" option for the "All Mail" folder
and its subdirectories. Then Claws Mail would only update those folders
when you open them.

I guess you could also subscribe to all folders except "All Mail" and
subdirectories, and set the account to only show subscribed folders.
You would then have to subscribe to every new created folder in the
future to see it, though.

(I have no idea how Google's not-quite-IMAP works with folder
