I haven't touched that code for a long time. I just tested with 1.0.15  
and it is created correctly. There isn't really anything in  
configuration that should break it either.. Well, you could always see  
if it gets created manually:

telnet localhost 143
x login user pass
y create testbox

And then check again for sure that there's no maildirfolder in /home/ 

If there really isn't, you could see if strace shows something useful.  
Before the testbox creation run "strace -p <pid of imap process>" and  
post the output.
