I think this is related to an issue I just encountered: if I delete
~/.offlineimap and ~/Maildir (to perform a clean first-time sync), the
filenames won't get the lower-case letters, even though the status file
in e.g. ~/.offlineimap/Account.../INBOX will show the lower-case
letters... I can't debug right now, though.
