Sounds like your "remote" server is telling OfflineIMAP that it has a
folder named .bash_history.  OfflineIMAP tries to read that folder, and
the mail server than says -- aha! this isn't really mail! -- and refuses
to let OfflineIMAP proceed.

You may be able to play with OfflineIMAP's "reference" option, pointing
it to your mail tree.  Failing that, you could use a folderfilter option
to exclude this folder and others like it.
