This commit message is poor. Explain here _why_ this patch.

<side note>
Please, don't care too much about overwhelming debian urgency. This
problem is known and explained since a long time. So, if debian
maintainers can't wait some days and want to pull it out from the
distribution, let them do. It would be really sad but they look somewhat
a bit suddenly nervous about an issue known for years.

Me too, BTW. That said, the documentation needs to be updated too.
Touching offlineimap.conf is enough. I in the work of a SGML to REST
migration for our main documentation.
