I still fail to see how this has anything whatsoever to do with the
subscription dialogue.

It already shows totally different names in the folder tree vs the
subscription dialogue.

There are 3 separate fields, full_name, path, and name.  The last is
used to display the name in the subscription dialogue, and it shouldn't
be the full path.

just a noop.
