It looks like the folder name should be formatted so that you could use
it in a subsequent folder command (prepend "+" and strip off any
trailing "+").  For example,

alto$ folders -norecurse
FOLDER                     # MESSAGES  RANGE       ; CUR      (OTHERS)
FileMe              has   no messages              ;          (others).
action+             has   41 messages  (   1-   55); cur= 55.
android             has    5 messages  (   1-    5); cur=  4.
animation           has   15 messages  (   1-   16); cur= 14.

So for +/, I'd expect to see something like

/bin         has  no messages           ;        (others).
/boot        has  no messages           ;        (others).
/dev         has  no messages           ;        (others).
/etc         has  no messages           ;        (others).
/home        has  no messages           ;        (others).

It appears that nmh does the right thing with, e.g., "folders +//home",
so I don't know if it's worth saying something to the nmh folks about
the double slash.  But I think the Mailutils output is correct.
