Just to be sure. On my machine, this folder (
~/.offlineimap/Repository-IMAPLocalUsername/FolderValidity ) is full of 11-byte
text files containing a large number like this: 1288942674
You're saying I should delete some/all of these 11-byte files, and run
offlineimap , and they will be quickly and harmlessly regenerated. And that
should correct the error for this first account. Correct?

I meant FolderValidity, yes.
Repairing that one will not take a lot of time, as it does not involve

UIDMapping will still be needed, don't blow that one away, or it will
duplicate all emails on the "LOCAL" side, as it doesn't know which one
it already had duplicated.
