Is it maybe changeset 11683:148fccbe9f32 you remeber:

	- - maildir: sometimes rm -rf Maildir;imaptest logout=0 gives
	-   Error: Opening INBOX failed: Mailbox doesn't exist: INBOX

This was just the updated to the todo-list, but I can't see what the fix
was. Also, if it was just occationally failing, it might not be that
critical.. So far it's only happended for one user for the last 36
hours, so either it's only occationally failing, or the other new users
are visiting webmail/imap before pop.
