Opensuse 11.0/cyrus config challenges

I have opensuse 11.0 installed, and have cyrus up and running, but I’m running into strange behaviors. I configured these through YAST. However it appears that YAST doesn’t do anything about adding users to cyrus and I have to do that through cyradm. Am I missing something?

I used cyradm to create several users:

cm user.user1
cm user.user2

I expected that would create the directory “user” under /var/spool/imap, as well as user/user1 and user/user2.

Instead it created:


and when I do an “lm” from cyradm, what I get are:
Shared Folders/user.user1 (\HasNoChildren)
Shared Folders/user.user1 (\HasNoChildren)
Shared Folders/user.user2 (\HasNoChildren)
Shared Folders/user.user2 (\HasNoChildren)

I suspect this has something to do with the

unixhierarchysep: yes

in /etc/imapd.conf messing things up when I tried to create the mailboxes. My challenge now is: How do I remove these strange folders? Everything I’ve read about cyrus dissuades me from directly mucking with the directories.
