User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.1)
Build Identifier: version 1.5.0.7 (20060909)

Thunderbird does not allow you to create a subfolder of a newly-created folder on an IMAP server without a restart.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into IMAP server.
2. Right-mouse click on the server, select "New Folder...", name folder, then click "OK"
3. Right-mouse click on the folder just created. The selection "New Subfolder..." does not appear.
4. Close Thunderbird, then reopen it and log in.
5. Right-mouse click the new folder just created. Selection "New Subfolder..." now appears.

Actual Results:  
A subfolder of a newly created folder cannot be created until Thunderbird is restarted.

Expected Results:  
Creation of subfolder should be immediately available.

Could you try a nightly branch build? http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8/

Same behavior. Thunderbird must be closed and reopened before the "New Subfolder..." option appears.
