Alright, I am not sure why this took me more than a year, but maybe it's 
because my bash script was working just barely well enough.

Nowadays the newer offlineimap is not crashing, but is truncating 
messages! So that kinda sucks. Unfortunately I didn't realize what was 
going on, and deleted some of the originals from the server, so now all 
I have is the local copies that are truncated. Happily, nothing 

So I've done a run of:
offlineimap -1 -d imap -l imap-log-dle -a ab-dle

I looked through it and found an example of bad stuff happening. Here is 
the section of the imap log where message 12793 is copied:

I thought it might be useful to see the copied message:
- as saved by offlineimap, in the folder ab-dle/.INBOX.FPC/cur
- a paste of its full text, lifted from the webmail client

And in case it's useful, here is a full log of the same session 
(password sanitized):


(Crossing my fingers that this is an easy fix...)

Oh ... and I didn't change the interface, seems like the logs are done 
properly with output via -l regardless of the interface.
