Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: mozilla-thunderbird

1. Click-and-drag a mail folder (containing many subfolders and messages) from an imap host
2. Hold down the Ctrl key to ensure that the folder is copied
3. Drop the folder onto Local Folders account

I expect the folder, all its subfolders, and all messages therein to be
copied, complete with structure, to my local folders.

A simple folder structure with 4 subfolders, 2 sub-subfolders, and 14
messages succeeded.

A large folder structure with 5 subfolders, each containing 5-20 sub-subfolders, and a grand total of 743 messages partially failed, silently.
   - The folder structure appears to have been copied successfully.
   - Only 56 messages were copied
   - Unsuccessful subfolders have been created on disk as empty files
   - Successful subfolders appear to contain all messages, though I haven't checked thoroughly

Note my local folder settings:
   user_pref("mail.account.account1.server", "server1");
   user_pref("mail.accountmanager.localfoldersserver", "server1");
   user_pref("mail.server.server1.directory", "/home/roydsd/Documents/Email");
