If you log to a file, using -l, you'll get this line:

2012-08-31 22:49:40 INFO: OfflineImap 6.5.4 starting...
  Python: 2.7.3 Platform: linux2
  Args: ./offlineimap.py -u quiet -a test -l log.txt

Yes, that should not appear when using the "quiet" backend, only when
using "basic" or another more verbose. I have pushed a change to the
"next" branch that prevents that. It will be in the next release.

[next a1dc76a] Don't output initial blurb in "quiet" mode
