Hi Sebastian,

Something in your "next" branch seems to have just broken my config, or
it was already broken and it is now revealed by new checks you have

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
% offlineimap -1 -u ttyui -a PersonalGMail

Do I need nametrans on the local repository, too, in addition to the
remote one?
