The client wants to list only maiboxes under mail/.

mail/% doesn't match #shared/*, so these don't get returned.
So this is really a problem with using those namespace prefixes on
clients. I've always wondered how clients would handle shared
mailboxes when they're set. Now I know: They don't. :)
You could work around this by creating a new "mail/#shared/" namespace.
