No, and I'm a little surprised that there's not more than one line
mentioning bar/foo in the strace output, presuming that mailutils is
trying to figure out the mailbox type.

For what it's worth, python's email library appears to work fine on
the directory (via MHMailbox).

Also, if it matters, I've tried running the code both via Guile
interactively and a #!/usr/bin/guile -s script.  I should probably
note that I've had to place the mailutils.scm in a ./mailutils dir in
the current directory because at the moment that file is missing from
the Debian packages.  (I've filed a bug, and it's being fixed).
