Favorites panel entries move around after restarting Outlook 2016

Outlook version
Outlook 365 64 bit
Email Account
Office 365 Exchange

For a while now, I've had a curious problem.

Background: running Outlook 2016 on Win 10, fully updated, with Office subscription.

Outlook 2016 has several accounts set up, with 3 main accounts: Home Outlook.com email, Work A Gmail and Work B Gmail.

In my Favorites panel, I have added:
Inbox Home Email
Sent Items Home email
Inbox Work A Gmail
Sent Items Work A Gmail
Inbox Work B Gmail
Sent Items Work B Gmail

After EVERY restart of Outlook 2016, the order changes randomly. It takes 5 secs to arrange them in the correct order again but it would be nice if the order would just stick.

I tried setting up a fresh profile, but it keeps happening.

Any ideas on how to fix this would be very welcome.

Known issue. Moving the imap folders below outlook.com should help... right click on a folder and choose open in new window and they should be in the right order.
