IMAP_PARTITION_UNKNOWN isn't associated with permission problems,  
typically.  For the create code path, you get it when there's a  
failure to convert the symbolic partition name to a path.

The number of cases that can result in IMAP_PARTITION_UNKNOWN is  
pretty small, I'd probably try inserting some logging into the  
process for those results.  It's either a bug or configuration  
oversight, I'm sure.
