I have a saved search folder. It isn't listed in the folders that can be synchronized on this computer. Thus it clearly isn't supposed to be synchronised. However when I go off-line, TB does try and synchronize it and so I get the error:

The current command did not succeed. The mail server responded:Mailbox does not exist.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a search
2. Save as a saved search folder
3. Go off-line
Actual Results:  
Error dialog with:
The current command did not succeed. The mail server responded:Mailbox does not exist.

Expected Results:  
No error dialog. No attempt to synchronize this folder should be made.

Search on-line is not selected for this saved-search folder.

Seeing this too. Marking new as I couldn't find any other bugs to duplicate this too.
