Mail box creation bug(?) in cyrus imap 2.1.11

If you try to create mail box under the INBOX called "INBOX", Cyrus 
fails the creation; though if you try and create a mail box called 
"INBOX.Test", Cyrus creates the "INBOX" and "Test" folder underneath it.

spool/imap/c/user/cove# find INBOX -ls

2425032    4 drwx------   2 cyrus    mail         4096 Jun 19 13:36 
2425036    4 -rw-------   1 cyrus    mail          150 Jun 19 13:36 
2425034    4 -rw-------   1 cyrus    mail           76 Jun 19 13:36

This confuses Apple quite a bit, causing it to not display the 
contents of the Inbox and I've sent them a bug note. I think what 
happened to me was that I created a folder with Mozilla (older 
version?) and it created it just like I described above -- not 
realizing that the prefix was already INBOX(?). Who knows...
