man imapd.conf on my machine gets:
If enabled, a special comparator will be used which will correctly
sort mailbox names that contain characters such as ' ' and '-'.
Note that this option SHOULD NOT be changed on a live system. The
mailboxes database should be dumped before the option is changed,
removed, and then undumped after changing the option.

ctl_mboxlist - perform operations on the mailbox list database
-d Dump the contents of the database to standard output in a porta‐
ble flat-text format. NOTE: In Cyrus versions 2.2.13 and ear‐
lier, the dump format did not include the mailbox type flags,
breaking remote mailboxes (frontends, mupdate master, unified
backends) when undumped.
