Sorry, I did read that post and the linked bugs, but I still don't get
the need for this patch (nor do I like importing "*" of a module without
at least a hint what it is used for).

Grepping for "import locale" doesn't find anything in the offlineimap
source. What exactly "import locale" in our code? Something hidden in
the thread lib?

And why would we import stuff on my Linux box to fix some apparently
broken Mac setup? We should make that propably conditional?
I don't feel strongly about this point, but I'd like to know *why* we
need that patch and why it fixes things.
