I have an IMAP account on Yandex. It has localized (in Russian) mailbox names for Sent, Drafts etc. GNUmail mangles these names:

(file #)

The problem is due to wrong string formatting in  Framework/Pantomime/NSString+Extensions.m -[stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfCharacter:withCharacter:].

It uses %c for unichar while the proper format pattern is %C. See the attached patch.
