[sylpheed:34765] "Get" toolbar button doesn't work on folders with a custom account

Hey guys,

since some time, when I press the "Get" toolbar button, it won't do
anything for IMAP folders which are assigned to a different account.

I often create separate accounts without a receiving server, just with
a SMTP server configured to send mails under different identity. This
is useful if the email address of this identity forwards mails to your
main account anyways.
And so, for some of the folders of my main IMAP account, I set a
different account in the folder properties dialog, Compose tab. This
works fine.

But the problem is when I opened such a folder and press the Get
button, nothing happens. I assume this is because the account of this
folder has no receiving mail server set.
Anyway, I think in previous versions this worked. 
Is this intential or a bug or is there an option?

Using Sylpheed 3.2.0beta2.
