Just tried creating a subfolder on dovecot running on FreeBSD with
Thunderbird as a client.  Worked perfectly.  Using IMAPs
(secure IMAP) and Maildir.  Dovecot was compiled/installed from ports.

Other system info:

~]> dovecot --version
~]> uname -a
FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE-p1 #6: Wed Feb 21 06:46:58 AKST 2007     root at  i386
