bug#9173: 24.0.50; Gnus IMAP fails to open folders whose names contain a

Subject: bug#9173: 24.0.50; Gnus IMAP fails to open folders whose names contain ampersands (&)
Date: Tue, 26 Jul 2011 14:28:44 +0100

I have IMAP folders with names like 'Family.Mum & Dad'. These work fine
in Apple Mail and other IMAP clients such as Squirrelmail.

However, in GNUS they are displayed as

   Family.Mum &- Dad

and when trying to open them, the following error results:

   Retrieving newsgroup: Family.Mum &- Dad...
   gnus-select-newsgroup: Couldn't request group Family.Mum &- Dad: NO Mailbox 
doesn't exist: Family.Mum &-- Dad

Note also the double hyphen in the second message, which may perhaps
provide a clue.

The server is Dovecot, in case that matters.
