Yep, it would currently cause an OfflineImapError at FOLDER serverity,
but we still have no check for severity at level FOLDER for this code

I will be sending a topic branch that implements a ui.error() function
that allows us to send exceptions to the error log and stores them on a
stack for outputting at the end of the offlineimap run. When this one is
merged (or rejected), I will send of a patch fixing this one.
