Sigterm Handler causing exception

I am fairly new to using offlineimap and I have encountered the following problem:
When I send the SIGTERM signal to offlineimap, it exits with the following exception:
Main program terminated with exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/offlineimap/init.py", line 344, in run
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/offlineimap/threadutil.py", line 125, in exitnotifymonitorloop
thrd = exitthreads.get(True, 60)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/Queue.py", line 177, in get
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/threading.py", line 257, in wait
TypeError: sigterm_handler() takes exactly 3 arguments (2 given)
No debug messages were logged for MainThread.
Now, since offlineimap does have a Sigterm handler, this does not seem to be "working as intended".
If I understand it correctly, the problem lies wihtin the call of the Sigterm handler. So I went into the source code
and removed the 'self' argument from it and recompiled. Now it seems to be working correctly (writing out
"terminating..." and exiting).
Now, since I do not really know any Python and therefore do not know what my problem really was, so I am asking here.
Any help would be much appreciated!
