root mailbox/partition permission problem

In the effort to set up some Shared public mailboxes I somehow  
managed to give myself read permission on the root of my mail partition.
i have no idea how this happened but would really like to fix it.   
Currently I see all my mailboxes in my client as well as the root, in  
this case 'user/' which lists all the other users on the system.  I  
have no permissions to see in the other mailboxes but I can see the  
list of users.

this is what it looks like from cyradm:

INBOX (\HasChildren)
INBOX/Apple (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Chess (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Craigslist (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Darwin (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Drafts (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Freelance (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Jobs (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Retrospect (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Sent Messages (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Spam (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/Trash (\HasNoChildren)
INBOX/eBay (\HasNoChildren)
Sent Messages (\HasNoChildren)
Shared (\HasChildren)
Shared/Christen Archives (\HasNoChildren)
Shared/Josh Archives (\HasChildren)
Shared/Josh Archives/Inbox (\HasChildren)
Shared/Josh Archives/Inbox/Freelance (\HasNoChildren)
Shared/Josh Archives/Inbox/Jobs (\HasNoChildren)
Shared/Josh Archives/Inbox/Orca (\HasNoChildren)
Shared/Josh Archives/Inbox/eBay (\HasNoChildren)
Shared/Josh Archives/Sent Messages (\HasNoChildren)
user/christen (\HasChildren)
user/christen/Deleted Messages (\HasNoChildren)
user/christen/Drafts (\HasNoChildren)
user/christen/Junk (\HasNoChildren)
user/christen/Sent Messages (\HasNoChildren)
user/christen/Trash (\HasNoChildren)
user/christen/dad phone list (\HasNoChildren)
user/emailadmin (\HasChildren)
user/emailadmin/Deleted Messages (\HasNoChildren)
user/emailadmin/Drafts (\HasNoChildren)
user/emailadmin/Sent Messages (\HasNoChildren)
user/junkmail (\HasChildren)
user/junkmail/Learned (\HasNoChildren)
user/notjunkmail (\HasNoChildren)
user/stef (\HasChildren)
user/stef/Deleted Messages (\HasNoChildren)
user/stef/Drafts (\HasNoChildren)
user/stef/Sent Messages (\HasNoChildren)

I can't sam the user (root) mailbox as "Mailbox does not exist"  I  
was successful in setting up the Shared mailboxes which work just  
fine but I want to get rid of this read access I have on user/

Any thought?
