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.
