I can no longer sync my gmail with offlineimap, I now get the following

ERROR: Syncing folder INBOX [acc: Gmail]
  zero length field name in format
ERROR: ERROR in syncfolder for Gmail folder INBOX: Traceback (most
  recent call last):

  zero length field name in format

I have checked my gmail account and don't see any strangely formatted
messages. What could be the problem?
