#2897: message counts in mailbox view all zero (IMAP, courier)
Changes (by Jajcus):
* version: 1.5.15 => 1.5.17
Today I have updated mutt to 1.5.17. And the problem was still there... so
I started debugging...
The cause of the problems seems to be difference in what folder names Mutt
uses ("INBOX./Personal" in my case) and what folder name IMAP server
reports ("INBOX"). I fixed that by updating the imap_mxcmp() function so
it normalizes folder delimiters (as defined by imap_delim_chars option)
while comparing folder names. That fixed the "all zeros" problems for me.
See the 'mutt-imap_mxcmp.patch' attached.
Though, I was not quite satisfied with the result, because Mutt showed me
number of "old unread" messages instead of the really new ones. So I made
a new patch, which uses 'recent' messages instead of 'unseen'. But usage
of that may be a personal choice or even depend on the server used, so the
second patch (mutt-imap_recent.patch) should not be applied upstream
