[PATCH] More detailed error output on corrupt UID mapping files

Thanks Sebastian and Nicolas.
The corrupt data has been found.
You're right it was indeed in the huge file ~/.offlineimap/Repository-IMAPLocal<username>/UIDMapping/INBOX.Sent
Here are a few lines before and after :
16734: P 35:4781
They're consecutive UIDs so I re-entered them and filled in the missing numbers in the sequence.
With the INBOX.Sent file repaired in this user, I re-ran it, and we're down to this same basic error on both mailboxes:
"WARNING: ERROR in syncfolder for username1: null byte in argument for long()"
"WARNING: ERROR in syncfolder for username2: null byte in argument for long()"
Do you have a patch for this "ERROR in syncfolder", to pinpoint the line number and filename ?
This function will need much more "robustifying", but the very least we
can do is to print the file name and line that are giving trouble.

Chris, you might want to try this patch to see the exact file name and line
that are giving you trouble. Nicolas, I advocate this one for going into master :-)
