Great, I've been waiting for that a few months now :) 0.99.5 should
probably come soon too, if I only figured why Dovecot's indexes
sometimes break when deleting mails with mutt.

Do you happen to have two From lines next to each others there? Like:

>From b at c ...

I think that's the only case Dovecot doesn't currently handle. I tried
to fix it for that a few times but the code just gets uglier and I
figured it's not worth the trouble since only time I've had it happen is
with some Dovecot bugs.
