Ah, I see.  That makes a good deal of sense.  I didn't investigate
enough, obviously.  As soon as I saw that the type setting for the
folder I'd set as Queue was ghosted, I had a (minor) panic and quit CM.

Well, I've just checked, and the /real/ queue folder is set as queue.
Thinking about it, I didn't actually edit folderlist.xml.  What I did
was, before shutting down CM, copy the contents od ~/.claws-mail to a
temporary location, shut down CM and the copy folderlist.xml.bak from
the safe location to ~/.claws-mail/folderlist.xml.  As such, the
'proper' setting were re-instated.

Warnings about manual editing of folder type duly noted, of course.

Handy to know, and may prove useful in this context.
