Thanks for pointing that out.  I fixed it in commit 7c1a6a2523 [1].
Running 'folder -all +/' on mailutils HEAD, I get the following:

folder: stat(/boot/config) failed: No such file or directory
folder: stat(/boot/vmlinuz) failed: No such file or directory
folder: stat(/boot/System.map) failed: No such file or directory
                     /+ has no messages;           (others).
                  /bin  has no messages;           (others).
                 /boot  has no messages;           (others).
                  /dev  has no messages;           (others).
[..more lines follow..]

which looks pretty similar to nmh output (except that nmh prints two
slashes where mailutils prints one).

Best regards,
Sergey
