Regardless, surely it's a bug or feature of Courier-imap.  I've recently
changed from Courier to dovecot, and KMail has no problem with folders as
either siblings or childred of INBOX (all folders _were_ children of INBOX
previously).  Courier never had any problem with subscriptions, either, so
I would suspect that is related to ownership of the directories.

My mail directories have access : drwxrwx--- 
and have group "mail".

The imap folders have various ownerships "drwx--S--" "drwx-----" and
"drwxrws--".  If your MDA delivers direct to the subfolders, I guess they'd
need group-read/write.
