I always turn it on.. As I usually have problems with stupid clients
that assume that the server always has a unix heirarchy seperator..
*couch* evolutions *cough*.  I know evolution has difficulties with the
net news separator (the "." default for cyrus IMAP). I've posted bug
reports ever since the prereleases before 1.0, and they still have not
fixed the issues..
AFAIK that's the only client that I've experienced problems with the
unihierarchysep setting OFF.
