I think I must be missing that icon - No where to be found.

Well, I can reproduce it without fail.

1) Create 'Something.Mbox', where 'Something' is not a real folder.
2) Delete both Something and Something.Mbox
3) It complains about not being able to delete Something (which is 
correct, since it doesn't exist), and then say it deleted 
'Something.Mbox'. Good so far
4) The page still has both Something and Something.Mbox on it, neither 
of which actually do anything since they don't exist anymore.

Seems like when there is an error, it's not refreshed properly. I can do 
some debugging later and figure out what exactly isn't happening.
