Yes, it was fine.
However, I've now found the problem using ktrace. The homedir attribute in
but when I do 'examine inbox' I see it has been munged:
30362 imap GIO fd 0 read 17 bytes
"a examine INBOX\r
30362 imap RET read 17/0x11
30362 imap CALL stat(0x186012a0,0xbfbfe4b0)
30362 imap NAMI "/mail/0/6/37/30/briandev.example.comev.example.com/tmp"
Furthermore, I can make it work properly just by adding
location = maildir:%h
inside the 'namespace' setting, rather than relying on it defaulting to the
mail_location setting (which is the same as that)
So it looks like "%dev..." was having "%d" expanded. As I have a config
workaround it's not a big deal, but it certainly was confusing; maybe this
is one level of attribute expansion which you didn't intend taking place.
