no quick syncs

Hi all,

I am using offlineimap v6.2.0 from the Ubuntu 10.10 repo via a preauth tunnel in
'daemon mode'[0] right now, but quick syncs don't work.

I specified

    autorefresh = 5
    quick = 20

in my config, and the autorefresh setting works as expected, the IMAP server
being checked for new mail every 300 seconds. But if I receive new mail in
between, it isn't detected until the next 'major' check.

Is this a known issue? Am I holding it wrong? Again!? ;P

thanks for your kind support, folks!

[0]You _absolutely_ want this!! :D _Much_ nicer to stop/start offlineimap than
having to deal with disabling a single cron job :/ But I guess we'll get it as a
default anyway, as soon as it supports IDLE!! ;P ;D
