Mozilla had same behaviour in subscription dialog, then it tried to use '/'
separator instead of '.'. If it works with Courier, I'm guessing it's
because Dovecot doesn't support NAMESPACE extension yet. It could be easily
added if needed.

Hmm.. They should be sorted by date. Last I checked it worked correctly,
maybe I've broken it later.

It's actually documented in dovecot.conf :) I couldn't figure out any way to
work around this, and I'm pretty sure Courier has exactly the same problem
(and we were seeing it too once in a while when we were still using
Courier). It may be that Courier does something a bit differently if you're
seeing this more with Dovecot. At least Courier doesn't check new mail as
often as Dovecot.

I think it's fixed in CVS.
