Mail box creation bug(?) in cyrus imap 2.1.11

Welp, it looks like I've run into bugs in Mozilla (Mozilla/5.0 
(Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030401) and 
Apple (1.2.5 (v552)).

I turned on debugging and Mozilla never actually tried to create the 
INBOX folder, at least nothing was logged to ...imap/log/cove/<pid>. It 
complains that the folder already exists. Apple's OTOH is able 
to create a INBOX.INBOX folder, but then becomes confused afterwards.
