I run several Dovecot servers and I have seen this too, sometimes even on
folders that are archived and not changing. I suspect that it is a bug in
Dovecot, since I think this is Pine's warning that the IMAP server is not
following the IMAP standard.
I also don't think it's the only bug in Dovecot: sometimes I get several
messages combined into one, and when using Evolution against Dovecot
servers, it would regularly crash Dovecot when appending mail to a server.
I'm rapidly losing faith in Dovecot.
