[Dovecot] Unusual behaviour

I've just noticed something strange in dovecot  I created
some IMAP folders from the command line (mkdir .INBOX.Folder1) as a
different user to the owner of the mailbox.  Obviously when I tried to
view them via IMAP I got an error message, but the message to the client
was "internal error[date time]" where date and time appeared to be the
current date and time.

Is this correct behaviour?

Dovecot was running on FC2, and the client was Mozilla Thunderbird under
