hi, the patch in question was added, to make top-level folders work
correctly in some cases. For example when one has "." as separators in a
local maildir. We would try to create folder names "." in our directory,
which of course does not work.

The handling of top-level folders needs to be carefully addressed so it
works with all configuration options (separator rules) and nametrans
rules. (what if a nametrans rule ends up as "empty"?)

I'll see if I can get that to work properly now.
