Ok, I just got around to trying the new code.

I can't seem to get offlineimap to keep running and stay connected for IDLE to work.

[Repository Google]
type = IMAP
(account stuff cut off)
nametrans = lambda foldername: re.sub('^INBOX.', '', foldername)
folderfilter = lambda foldername: foldername not in [ '[Gmail]/All Mail', '[Gmail]/Important', '[Gmail]/Spam', '[Gmail]/Trash' ]
maxconnections = 3
idlefolders = [ 'INBOX' ]
holdconnectionopen = yes
keepalive = 60
sep = /

Is there something else I'm missing?
