When I ran into this problem, I found a patch that is supposed to do
the right thing (ie not try to fetch multiple sizes when that isn't
possible).  I'm pretty sure I found it in the fetchmail list archives.
I expect it will be officially incorporated one day.

But I didn't bother to try the patch since adding "fetchsizelimit 1"
to .fetchmailrc is a successful workaround.
