Oh my god, you're right : 

in 1.2.12, I left the separator= commented out, so I had the default.
in 2.0.8 I set separator = / myself.

Still I can't see why it would lead TB to use a dot in a previously existing mailbox name.

The separator is just the separator used by the client in the mailboxnames when
it sends commands to the server, right ?

Yes, one shared namespace, with separator = / too.
