Default [Q] Exchange services still draining battery

On 4.4.2, and I'm still seeing the exchange wakelocks when my syncing is set to Push.

Wakelock detector is showing that the Email sync is whats causing the wakelock. Right now it's showing 1hr 47m x15237.

Email syncing still seems to be working. When I look at the corporate account in the settings, I see it constantly going between Syncing and the last sync date/time. Is that normal? I've tried deleting the account, clearing cache and data of email and exchange services and it still is happening.

I thought this was supposed to be fixed in 4.4.1 or 4.4.2 but this battery drain is just killing me... I'm at 39% with only 1 hour on screen time because of it.

If I change the option to sync to 5 minutes it's fine... but Push sync is just destroying me.

Sorry if this post is disjointed.. anyone else still experiencing this?

Mine does it every couple of weeks or so, just click sync off and then on again and it'll be fine for another couple of weeks. Haven't worked out what's kicking it off but it seems to happen not long after a restart bit not every time.
