mailbox listed twice

This looks like the problem arises if there is a child mailbox that starts
out exactly the same as the parent, and only the next character in the
child string after the end of the parent string match is a space.
Or, (!strncmp(parnet,child,strlen(parent) && child[strlen(parent)+1] == '
Is that a correct analysis?
