Given this pythonfile
=====BEGIN PYTHON FILE=====
======END PYTHON FILE======
and this excerpt from the .offlineimaprc
remotepass = keyring.get_password("imap.example.com", "account")
results in the error "[AUTHENTICATIONFAILED] Invalid credentials".
The keyring.get_password() function returns strings in the form of
"u'thepassword'". Using the return value directly also results in an
error. I don't know python, so I don't know what's going wrong here,
but it seems to be that "u'thepassword'" isn't the same as "thepassword"
in config files.
