I just doublechecked it in my testing environment and the patch seems to
work as expected. The mailbox is created under
/var/spool/imap/domain/n/nondefaultdomain.tld/user/test in both cases.

Is there any more information (logs, imapd.conf) you can provide in order
that I can look further?

The user always has the c permission on her own Inbox. In that case the
INBOX.Sent folder may be created. What I suspect is that the INBOX folder
has not yet been created and thus INBOX.Sent cannot be created. For more
information on Squirrelmail INBOX creation functionality, perhaps you
should refer to the squirrelmail mailing lists.

On the server side the autocreate inbox patch is surely the way to do this.
