User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8a6) Gecko/20050111
Build Identifier: Thunderbird version 1.0.2 (20050317)

When TRASH folder name used for IMAP mail account is BASE64-encoded UTF-8 string
(for example, when trash folder name consists of cyrillic letters), and such
trash folder specified in "prefs.js" file, Thunderbird creates one more folder,
named same as trash folder, but with leading "-", and shows both folders in a
folder tree. Both folders have the "trash" icon.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create IMAP folder "&BBoEPgRABDcEOAQ9BDA-" (which is BASE64-encoded UTF-8
cyrillic word "Корзина"="Trash")
2.Create Thunderbird IMAP mail account, do not connect to the IMAP server at
this time, quit Thunderbird
3.In "prefs.js" file specify:
user_pref("mail.server.server#.trash_folder_name", "&BBoEPgRABDcEOAQ9BDA-");
(with correct mail server number :)
4.Start Thunderbird, connect to the IMAP server and get the folders list
Actual Results:  
In a folders tree there appears two trash folders named "&BBoEPgRABDcEOAQ9BDA-"
and "Корзина" respectively. In fact .msf file corresponding to the first folder
actually named "&-BBoEPgRABDcEOAQ9BDA-.msf". At this time there is no
corresponding IMAP folder exists on the server. Any attempt to delete any
message from any other folder fails with error "The mailserver responded:
[TRYCREATE] UID COPY failed: No such destination mailbox." However, manually
created IMAP folder named "&-BBoEPgRABDcEOAQ9BDA-" will assosiate with this
Thunderbird creation :)
Each one of this folders in Thunderbird folders tree have a "trash" icon, but
only the first one have correct trash context menu.

Expected Results:  
Thunderbird should display only one Trash folder (named either "Trash" or
"Корзина") - see the bug 279139 (which is more likely a feature request) - but
neither create additional folders nor show trash folder name as BASE64-encoded
