I haven't seen pine and mutt in ages. I can't comment on this though I
think an MUA uses IMAP as the interface and doesn't care about Mailbox
or Mbox in the backend.

There are some loops in those functions which expect
sequences/characters and if those don't come around we have potential
leaks and breaks. I see what you mean, but don't hold your breath for
a fix soon. We are looking for a replacement of our IMAP backend lib
and will work on this as soon as we released the 0.1.1 (this weekend).
