It means that the remote end has terminated the connection unexpectedly.  In
this case, with SSL, it's a little worse: the conection just went dead;
they didn't close it the proper SSL way.

This is usually indicitive of problems in the server.  Perhaps their
server does not deal well with multiple OfflineIMAP threads.  You may
try limiting OfflineIMAP to one thread (run it with -1).
