Yeah, I've run across that one as well (via typo).  Caused a little
consternation while I tried to figure out where the mail had been refiled
to.  This was on my to-do list to look at for when I eventually get some
time to hack on nmh again.

Thanks for the report.  My personal opinion would be that it'd be better to
error if a non-empty folder name is given, rather than to get the rest of
the commands to work "properly" with a bare +.
