I did change the code so that the maildir creation is delayed until it's
really needed. But I don't know of any bugs in this, and I can't
reproduce your problem. Could you show the error messages from the log
file you get when a new user tries to access the mailbox?

Again the control directory creation is delayed until it's needed. So
that might not be the actual problem. Are there anything in error logs
when this happens?

Also could you try manually so you can see what exactly Dovecot replies
to the subscribe commands? Try something like:

telnet localhost 143
a login username password
b unsubscribe shared/some-mailbox
c subscribe shared/some-mailbox

What are the replies?
