Use a nametrans function. Use a regular expression along the lines of:

  re.sub('(?P<boxname>[^/]+)/(?P=boxname)', '\g<boxname>', name)

This (lightly tested) expression will reduce any double name separated by a
slash to only one name. Thus 'Trash/Trash' becomes just 'Trash'. A nametrans
function is applied on the remote foldername, not the local one.

For more information on Python and regular expressions, see:
