BlinkenLights throws exception

After a bit of trial and error trying to debug, it seems it is due to multiple
threads - if I force single thread only with the '-1' switch offlineimap
completes correctly.

Unfortunately using the debug switch '-d threads' doesn't provide debug
messages of interest, but if I use '-d all' and pipe the output to a file I get
the following just before the exception (I've substituted the email address):

Is this of any use? Any ideas what else I can try?
