v6.5.1.1 contained a switch from using an internal imaplib2 function to
the public version (.response()), however that led to reports that
"UIDVALIDY" and "APPENDUID" fetching sometimes failed, despite the
server having sent data. This can entail duplicate messages but no data
loss. But as it is very annoying and buggy, I herewith release the next
-rc1 containing smallish fixes that fix this behavior. A proper
Changelog will be delivered on the next full release. If you experience
crashes with please test this version first.

Please test this release candidate, or it will becomes v6.5.2 soonish.
Grab 1) via git (tag v6.5.2-rc1 or current master) 2) or from
