What IMAP server software do you use? If you use Dovecot it can create those
custom folders for you. I think with 2.0.x it was through a separate plugin,
with 2.2.x it comes built-in.

It may have the same effect, but I think you're supposed to put your custom options
  in config.inc.php. Of course I may have a different version than you.

I grepped through defaults.inc.php on my installation and found this:

// By default list of subscribed folders is determined using LIST-EXTENDED
// extension if available. Some servers (dovecot 1.x) returns wrong results
// for shared namespaces in this case. http://trac.roundcube.net/ticket/1486225
// Enable this option to force LSUB command usage instead.
// Deprecated: Use imap_disabled_caps = array('LIST-EXTENDED')
$config['imap_force_lsub'] = false;

// Some server configurations (e.g. Courier) doesn't list folders in all namespaces
// Enable this option to force listing of folders in all namespaces
$config['imap_force_ns'] = false;

Perhaps that last one would be of help?
