The problem was not that I lack understanding of mbox "imap sub folder"
implementation (read a lot about it trying to fix this), but that I incorrectly
long ago read "or" instead of "and" in the TB check box description, and hadn't
thoroughly re-read the description recently. :(

The important thing is that discussing it here and getting feedback from you
wonderful folks helped me find the problem and fix it. :)
