Sorry, I don't have time to solve your specific issue now, but just 2
short notes:

1) Negative UIDs are new emails on the LOCAL side that are not on the
other side still need uploading.
2) UIDs are always increasing even after you delete some mails. So it is
perfectly possible to have 133 emails and a UID of 150 for one of
them. This is a standard IMAP UID.
3) would need a full IMAP log to answer that....
