User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4
Build Identifier: version 2.0.0.0 (20070326)

I believe this two issues to stem from the same problem so I reporting them together.
First Issue
    When Creating a folder in mbx format using "#driver.mbx\<folder name>", when IMAP Server Directory is Null, Thunderbird does not auto subscribe like it does when when using the default driver.  It is probably attempting to subscribe with the driver in the name.  

Second Issue
    There is also an error in the way Thunderbird handles new folder creation when the "IMAP Server Directory" is set to something other than blank.  It doesn't use the driver, instead it adds it to the name of the folder to be created. For example if  the server directory is set to "mail" and you create new folder "#driver.mbx\new" it creates a folder called "#driver.mbx\new" instead of a creating a folder called "new" in mbx format.  The error seems to be that the "mail" should be inserted after the "#driver.mbx", if a driver is present, instead of appending to the beginning.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
First Issue
1.Create IMAP account on UW-IMAP.
2.Create new folder with the mbx driver using "#driver.mbx"

Second Issue.
First Issue
1.Create IMAP account on UW-IMAP.
2.Set IMAP Server Directory in Advanced to something other than Null
3.Create new folder with the mbx driver using "#driver.mbx" i.e. "#driver.mbx\new"

Actual Results:  
First Issue
The folder is created on the server in the mbx format but it is not auto subscribed as it is when using the default driver.

Second Issue
A Folder is created on the server with default driver called "#driver.mbx\new"  inside the Server Folder.  Note. The above '\' is not representing a path, it is in the name of the folder created.


Expected Results:  
First Issue
Folder is created and Subscribed automatically.

Second Issue.
Folder is created in the mbx driver instead of with "#driver.mbx" in the folder name.
