The nametrans rules are:

local:  nametrans = lambda localfoldername: 'INBOX.' + localfoldername
remote: nametrans = lambda foldername: re.sub('^INBOX\.', '', foldername)

Previously only the 'remote' nametrans was present.  (Given your
response, I have now unadded the local nametrans setting, too.)  I have
also verified (via an IMAP/telnet session) that all folders in that
account are subfolders of INBOX, and that INBOX.INBOX type folders do
not exist.

I cannot check this now, but later I will try --info with the latest
spaetz/next branch and report back.
