I get an error when trying to run offlineimap with Curses.Blinkenlights:

Thread 'InputHandler loop' terminated with exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/offlineimap/", line 153, in run

if chr(key) == 'q':
ValueError: chr() arg not in range(256)

No debug messages were logged for InputHandler loop.


Is there any way to make this UI work on Mac OS X?  (10.6.4)
