Ahh, I see. 

1) This function deals with Maildirs, some of which might
not be generated by OfflineImap. And having "topdir/cur" is a valid
location for mail, this is why we always need to scan for the top dir
too to see if it contains a maildir folder.

Creating such toplevel maildirs with offlineimap did not seem possible
due to the "empty folder lead to LocalStatus errors" that you were
seeing. I am not sure why we shouldn't allow MailDir folders starting
with '/' for what it's worth. They should just work (but that would
require testing too).
