These are actually all normal. I just haven't bothered to fix imaptest
to treat different users' mailboxes as actual separate mailboxes. Since
it assumes all the mailboxes are the one and same, it sees a lot of
problems because they aren't. The multiuser support was written long
before I added these checks and I haven't needed the multiuser testing
myself for a long time, so this is broken for now. Feel free to fix
it. :)

Also have you seen http://imapwiki.org/Benchmarking? imaptest tests best
the webmail kind of a performance but not that much of
Outlook/Thunderbird performance.
