102 magic number

I'm trying to use offlineimap with direct output to maildir format.
Unfortunately, whatever I try, offlineimap always gets stuck at
message 102:

$ ./offlineimap.py -1
Copy message 392 (102 of 163) Gmail-Remote:achats -> Gmail-Local-Maildir

Now, if I remove label 'achats' from the list of labels to
synchronize, offline gets stuck again at message 102, but for another

$ ./offlineimap.py -1
Copy message 107 (102 of 211) Gmail-Remote:candidatures -> Gmail-Local-Maildir

If I press CTRL+C at this time, nothing happens. I really have to use
'kill -KILL' to terminate the process.

$ ./offlineimap.py -d imap
 [imap]:   11:29.35 imap.gmail.com reader poll => []
 [imap]:   11:59.38 imap.gmail.com reader poll => []
 [imap]:   12:29.41 imap.gmail.com reader poll => []
 [imap]:   12:59.43 imap.gmail.com reader poll => []
 [imap]:   13:29.45 imap.gmail.com reader poll => []

More and more such lines appear but nothing else happens.

I'm using offlineimap from git master.
