need help with nametrans

I downloaded my gmail with offlineimap following a very simple setup. I got
the following directories, and some more for labels. The folders for the
labels contained empty subfolders (cur, tmp, new).
[Gmail].All Mail [Gmail].Drafts [Gmail].Sent Mail INBOX
I do not like these names so I moved the folders to gmail-all, gmail-sent,
gmail-inbox, and deleted other folders (which were empty anyway).
Moreover, I went to gmail (web interface) and removed all labels.
I then added the following lines in .offlineimaprc
folderfilter = lambda foldername: foldername in ['[Gmail]/All Mail',
nametrans = lambda folder: re.sub('INBOX$', 'gmail-inbox',
re.sub('.*Sent Mail$', 'gmail-sent',
re.sub('.*All Mail$', 'gmail-all', folder)))))))
and re-ran offlineimap.
This time offlineimap downloaded again several thousand mails in gmail-all
and gmail-sent, and it seemed that it was duplicating thousands of mails.
For example, I noticed that ls -S shows 2 files of each size.
Am I doing something wrong? (I don't understand exactly how the folderfilter
and nametrans are supposed to behave.
Also, how can I simply get either "all mail" in a single maildir or simply
"inbox" and "sent"? I would imagine that "all mail" is simply the union on
inbox and sent (and possibly bin).
Thank you for the help.
