It is weird that you have a foldername ending with a dot. There have
been a few changes to the code though since 6.4.0.

No, there should be no folder separator at the "end" of a folder name in
any case. Can you:

a) Try the "next" branch of my git repo, to see if it has been
fixed. There have been a few changes since
6.4.0. (git://github.com/spaetz/offlineimap.git)

b) On that branch, run a "./offlineimap.py --info" to see what folders
exist and how they would get translated and send that (privately if your
folder names are confidential)?
