And does the existence of these files/folders stop claws-mail from
functioning, or is it just some garbage lying around on your harddisk,
and claws-mail shows the correct things to you as user.
I agree this is a bug and could be fixed, but it is unrelated to your
issue of a backup. You want a safe way for backup, and I suggested to
backup the whole folder, because this is the sanest thing you could do.

Claws-mail is not the first program that would leave some cruft on the
harddisk, and it is not the last to do so. As long as it doesn't choke
on it, I guess it's acceptable to be fixed rather later than sooner ;)
