I should add that I have a goofy maildir setup.  I don't know the proper 
terminology for it, but my mail folders are physical folders on my 
hard drive.  They are not denoted by periods in the file name.  So for 
example I have a folder stored at `~/mail/local/lists/offlineimap`.  I 
don't think this really affects the offlineimap side of things because I 
don't have any nested folders in my IMAP account.  I just set the local 
repository location to `localfolders=~/mail/imap`.
