In the end, I had to use the following:

  set spoolfile=imap://richard@the-place.net/ # default,
  set folder=imap://richard@the-place.net/  # '=' refers to this
  set record="=INBOX.Sent"
  mailboxes = "INBOX"

This may be wrong, but it seems to work.  If I add INBOX to folder, then
when I try to navigate back to the inbox from elsewhere, and [tab] on
the IMAP item in the list it offers me imap:.....place.net/INBOX/INBOX
which is to say it appends {'/' . $mailboxes} to $folder.  That means that
even if I make $mailboxes null, I still get the extra '/' and cannot
open the inbox.  The way I did it, I can both navigate back to INBOX and
save copies of sent mail to Sent.  It is not congruent with any
instructions I have seen anywhere else, but it works for me.

Thanks to all who helped me get thus far.
