i use thunderbird 0.7.2 and other people here use mozilla 1.7.1 . For my part my folder "junk" has not the special icon 
, if i put Junk then i have it. Also a user cannot change the name of the folder you must do it on the server and 
resubscribe to use it again (the rename menu icon do not show on those folders). On a large userbase you see why i wish 
to change this on the server side and not on the client :)

   So i don't know why we have different behaviors but this is my experience here :)
