Yes, I've found that if I create a local folder, offlineimap won't sync
it unless I create an empty remote folder with the same name.  But then
I sometimes find that after uploading all of the messages to the remote
folder, offlineimap downloads all of them on the next sync!  It also
seems to reverse the order of the messages in the group.

(I'm using an IMAP server at both ends, in case that matters here.)
