A client does not seem to synchronize subscription and folder operation. I
would remove the subcriptions file und let the user subscribe anew.
If for instance subcriptions contains a mailbox, which does not exist
physically, some versions of Thunderbird shows this mailbox, but as soon
as you do something with it, you get a "mailbox does not exist" error. You
can unsubscribe from the mailbox and the ghost mailboxes are gone.
