Hi Vincent, thanks for being my guinea pig. Sorry to hear it did not
work out well. I went once again through the setup with pen and paper,
making notes when to use what and I believe I got it right now.

Mmh, your REMOTE repo here' adds an INBOX/ prefix and your LOCAL repo
removes it. 
Your nametrans rules do not do the reverse if you have a
local folder that does not start with INBOX. If every folder does, you
should be fine indeed.

I just pushed what I believe to be the fix.

I was able to reproduce this and to fix this, I think. Can you try
again? In the very worst case, you'll get a few folders to delete but no
data loss.

Thanks, if this is fixed, it is time for rc3 :-)
