Yes, I did expect an error message, but after thinking about it, I don't
want nmh to prevent me from shooting into my foot.

Well I got confused: "scan +" doesn't change the current folder at all.
However "folder +" shows the described behavior.

This is even a more general bug: Try "refile +inbox/11111; scan +inbox"
for example. I think subfolders are a feature, numeric folder names
probably are not. (Allowing them would rise quite some questions
about the semantics of sequences and so on ...)
