[Dovecot] pop3 not autocreating directory structure

mail_home = /srv/mailstore/%256LRHu/%Ld/%Ln
and I just noticed one of our newly provisioned users initially failed
to pop her mails. I saw several of these:
dovecot:: pop3(new.user at example.net): Error: Couldn't open INBOX: Mailbox doesn't exist: INBOX
dovecot:: pop3(new.user at example.net): Couldn't open INBOX top=0/0, retr=0/0, del=0/0, size=0
before she switched to imap and then everything looked fine:
dovecot:: imap(new.user at example.net): Disconnected: Logged out bytes=11/338
Looking at the timestamps in the filesystem I see that the users home
directory wasn't created before switcing to imap.
Is this a know problem?
