I'm fighting the same issue.  With the current release (2.1rc6) no 
errors are logged - but I'm having problems deleted folders from trash.  
I've enabled tb-extra-mailbox-sep.  Two folders that were previously in 
Trash were successfully removed.  I deleted four more - after several 
Thunderbird restarts, compacts, refreshes, I have killed three of them - 
there is still one folder that won't "die".  Thunderbird reports the 
mailbox doesn't exist, yet it continues to appear.
