Oh, yes that code has changed since, and 6.3.3 might exhibit different
behavior actually. If you want to see what's coming from the IMAP server
do wrap the line with long() into a try: and bump out if it fails:

                    for msgid in imapobj.untagged_responses['EXISTS']:
                            maxmsgid = max(long(msgid), maxmsgid)
                            raise Exception(str(msgid))

Would be interested what you are seeing.
