Yeah, a fix has already been on the way, but our maintainer is on
holidays. Our only consolation is that the python imaplib is not better,
and also sends invalid date formats (it uses localized date formats),
and the fix is still not in upstream python (which is why we have our
custom date parsers in the first place).
