Linux RH7.2 running standard imap server (imap-2001a-1.72.0)

When showing all folders (not "only subscribed folders") the #ftp namespace
shows up in my list of folders.  Seems like I should be able to eliminate this
by removing "#ftp/" from my Public (shared) namespace in the Advanced IMAP
Server Settings screen.  But after removing it (and deselecting "Allow server to
override these namespaces,") #ftp still shows up in my folder list.

Only way to get rid of it is to "Show only subscribed folders."

The same behavior exists with the "~" namespace.  Seems like a bug to me.  Am I

Looks like it works, but you have to exit mozilla for the changes to take
effect.  Therefore, this would be nice to fix, but its not very important.
