No idea. If you talk IMAP protocol directly, it should go like: 

a create foo/ 

creates a foo directory that can hold child mailboxes

b create bar

creates bar mailbox that can't hold children

c create a/d

creates a that has a d child mailbox

If in doubt, it's usually the client that does something wrong.
