If I do the following within Thunderbird 3.1.9:
*) create a folder "test"
*) create a subfolder within "test" called "test2"
*) copy a message to test
*) copy a message to test2
*) rename "test" to "testx"

the result in thunderbird is:
*) a folder "testx" with subfolder "test2"
*) both are *empty*

a reconstruct is needed to make them visible again:
$ reconstruct -r user.xxxx.testx
user.xxxx.testx uid 1 found - adding
user.xxxx.testx.test2 uid 1 found - adding

Renaming a folder again before reconstructing it wipes the message files from

I filed a bug:
