We've also had many claims that cyrus randomly decides to delete mail
folders without the user wanting it to do so.  I tracked a few of these
cases down to users who were just confused by Mulberry.  The display
hierarchy would make the user think they had 2 sent-mail folders, 2
inboxes, etc and they'd try to delete the duplicate folder.
