I used offlineimap to fetch mail from my Gmail account. It worked perfectly for me till last week, then I got such exception at every offlineimap launch:

WARNING:OfflineImap:Thread 'Copy message from repoNameRemote:[Gmail]/All Mail' terminated with exception:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Last 1 debug messages logged for Copy message from repoNameRemote:[Gmail]/All Mail prior to exception:
thread: Register new thread 'Copy message from repoNameRemote:[Gmail]/All Mail' (account 'Accountname')

I performed such steps:
1. fsck of all volumes (no errors)
2. delete old repo and start offlineimap again (it fetched my mail for the Aug, but say nothing about Sep)

offlineimap --info returned:

 [Gmail]/All Mail

I suppose that Gmail changed something inside it's services and my configs and OS state are correct.

if possible, let me know how I could make offlineimap working correctly again.
