Thanks! However, in its current form, the fix is only marginally useful.

After reading your email, I did some quick tests with xdg-mime on a
bunch of Maildir messages, and it is broken in most of the cases. For
instance, for _any_ message that ends with a string of the form "2,S"
(a lot of the new IMAP servers will create such names) (update: I read
http://cr.yp.to/proto/maildir.html and it seems a suffix of 2,S is a
standard way of indicating that the mail has been "seen") xdg-mime
reports the type as "2,S". For several others, it reports the mime
type as ascii or text/plain and not rfc8222.

Further, given that hidden folders are used by almost _all_ IMAP
servers that support Maildir, the inability to index hidden folders is
fairly limiting. (eg: http://wiki.dovecot.org/MailboxFormat/Maildir).
But I'm sure beagle indexes a lot of hidden folders (kopete/gaim logs,
thunderbird emails etc) -- so this should be easy to get around right?

I guess I should file a bug in xdg-utils now. Thanks again!
