[Users] Claws-mail and IMAP subscriptions

I'm using Claws-mail for several years, now, and I'm very happy with it.

Like many of you, over the years, I accumulated thousands of e-mails, and I
keep all of them, sorted in dedicated boxes, by date. The problem is it
takes more and more time to Claws-mail to check for new mails, as it
parses every boxes. So, I wanted to give a try to subscriptions.

Well, I wish I didn't :o(

As I want to keep seeing unsubscribed boxes, I unchecked the "display only
subscribed folders" options. That's where things started to go wrong: I
have now all my boxes duplicated under the INBOX folder! And even if I
check back the above option, these boxes remains there :o(

The other funny thing is that boxes are still checked, even if
unsubscribed! So, now, I have all boxed checked twice :o/ That's an epic

Could someone explain me how this feature is supposed to work? What are
the respective roles of client and server? Could it be an issue (or non
compatible config) with the IMAP server?

Thanks for your help.
