Creating a folder, then adding a new subscription breaks stuff.  I created a new
folder to try out filtering on RSS feeds.  I added a new subscription and items
went into my newly created (feedless) folder instead of a new folder.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new folder called 'test' under 'News and Blogs' using the right
click menu.
2. Subscribe to a new feed.

Actual Results:  
The downloaded feed items appeared in the 'test' folder instead of the folder
for the new feed, which was created, yet remained empty.

Expected Results:  
Put the downloaded feed items into the correct folder.
