That did not help.

I have removed the folders in question locally (they seemed to be old
leftovers), but now it syncs weird things:
Syncing INBOX: IMAP -> Maildir
Adding flag a to 12 messages on INBOX
Syncing idc: IMAP -> Maildir
Adding flag a to 74 messages on idc
Deleting flag S from 186 messages on idc
The latter folder has not been touched in weeks, and what is flag a?
Downgrading to 6.3.4 and resyncing reverses these things:
Deleting flag a from 12 messages on INBOX
Deleting flag a from 74 messages on idc
Adding flag S to 186 messages on idc
Something seems to be seriously broken there.
