Offlineimap and uw-imap eats all memory

I am trying to use offlineimap with the uw-imapd to create offline local
imap mirror of my mails. I was following this nice tutorial:

Everything seems to be set properly but, when I invoke offlineimap, it
starts, connects to the remote mail server and then it just seems doing
nothing, except consuming more and more memory pretty quickly. There is
almost no traffic on the network interface so I doubt it is downloading

Do you have any idea what I might be doing wrong ?

offlineimap (version 6.2.0)
uw-imap (version 2007e)

$ cat ~/.imaprc
set new-folder-format mix
set mail-subdirectory .offlinemail

$ cat ~/.offlineimaprc
accounts = Work

[Account Work]
localrepository = LocalImap
remoterepository = Remote

[Repository LocalImap]
type = IMAP
remotehost = localhost
preauthtunnel = /usr/sbin/imapd
maxconections = 2

[Repository Remote]
type = IMAP
remotehost = [emailserverhere]
ssl = yes
remoteuser = [myemailhere]
maxconections = 2
