For what it's worth, I upgraded (from 6.4.2 I think) and the basic UI 
seems to have changed.  I run offlineimap from a script which can get 
called by launchctl (on OS X - it's like cron) or from the command line 
when I want a manual sync.  I have the ui set to basic and the output 
is sent to a log file:

     offlineimap -o -q -u basic >> $LOGFILE &

Some thing changed though.  Now there's a lot of messages seemingly sent 
to stderr.  Not only do they never make it to the log file, they corrupt 
my mutt display when I run the script.  So I had to modify the above line to:

     offlineimap -o -q -u basic >> $LOGFILE 2>&1 &

With that change, my log file contents look like they did before.  It's 
not the end of the world, but it doesn't seem right.  Status messages 
like that should be going to stdout, right?
