Details

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090824 Firefox/3.5.3 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: version 2.0.0.23 (20090812)

When starting Thunderbird with the "check_all_imap_folders_for_new" enabled, thunderbird attempts to the IMAP server for new emails in any "Saved Search" folders.
This results in an error dialog:
The current command did not succed. The mail server responsed: [NONEXISTENT] Mailbox doesn't exist: <folder name>.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new "Saved Search Folder" (The "Search Online" option doesn't affect the behaviour).
2. Enable the "check_all_imap_folders_for_new" in the Config editor.
3. Close Thunderbird & re-open.
Actual Results:  
Thunderbird checks for new email in all folders.

Expected Results:  
Thunderbird should ignore non IMAP folders (eg. Saved Search folders) when checking for new email in all IMAP folders.
