[MlMt] default mailbox for find

I got this changed to:

$ defaults read com.freron.MailMate MmMailboxChooserBindings
         long = "imap://user@foo.example.com/All%20Messages";
         short = "All%20Messages";

But that did not change the behavior. When I click on a message header 
to find other messages that match, it still defaults to searching in the 
mailbox that used to be listed there.
