Too many reads

For long time, I have encountered problems with offlineimap crashing out at
at line 289 in account.py . I forget the error message, but something
like "Too many reads."
Just trying again, sometimes more than once, cleared the problem.
But eventually, I hit a case where it was very persistant.
I tried increasing the loop count in syncrunner :
diff accounts.py accounts.py_back
< # Loop account sync if needed (bail out after 5 failures - was 3).
< looping = 5
> # Loop account sync if needed (bail out after 3 failures).
> looping = 3
and that seems to have fixed the problem. Perhaps a longer loop is
needed on more modern faster processors?
