OK, first of all, I think there is a real bug involved by here that has
nothing to do with nametrans rules. Folders should not have trailing
slashes and there had been another report where this was so.

1) Can you try to replicate the same error with the current "next"
branch on my repository (git://github.com/spaetz/offlineimap.git) to see
if this has been fixed.

2) If this is not fixed, do run a ./offlineimap.py --info on the next
branch and capture the output, it lists your folder names and the name
translations of it.

Is LocalPersonal a MailDir? If that is so, can you run a -d maildir -l
debug.log to capture the maildir part? You can make it available to me
in private if you want to do that, and I'll have a look at how the
folder names are being constructed in your case.

Thanks, let's get that fixed.
