Yes, this is also a problem. Apparently gmail sets timezone based on
where you signed up for the account.


My timezone is -0500, so the IMAP queries "SINCE 01-Mar-2015" are
actually asking for mails with date after Feb 28, 17:00UTC (I've
verified this using my account). The dates that end up in the filename
are of the form seconds-since-the-epoch, and Maildir.py
_iswithinmaxage() doesn't take time zone into account when calculating
when "maxage days ago" was.
