Sure, I realize that.  But in the "Display Hierarchy" dialog, Mulberry has
a part to enter additional hierarchies (I guess this is namespaces), that
aren't in the top part which is where Mulberry shows the advertised
namespaces.  When I enter "EXPUNGED" or ".EXPUNGED" or ".EXPUNGED/" I get
a folder in my mailboxes list but no subfolders and no messages in that
folder (even though there are messages there).

If I remove hidden=yes, Mulberry crashes on login.
