I hit this same issue, turned out to be that leaving mail_save_crlf =no 
fixed it (I had set it to yes).  The issue could be duplicated by moving 
messages within webmail to inbox then popping them out.  OE would 
experience display issues if mail_save_crlf = yes.

For what it is worth to anyone:

We are running dovecot on a fairly large user base subscription service, OS 
is fbsd, mbox format.  It's not huge, we currently process around 210k 
messages a day, but it is a decent load.  Web interface is a highly 
modified squirrelmail, imap proxy for the webmail, not using dovecot pop (I 
need more features in my popd, mainly ability to restrict by username), and 
a custom MTA.  We don't yet allow outside access to imap, but plan to offer 
both imap and imaps after a 1.x release has proven stable.  We currently 
run the latest 99.10.5 and found that it resolved the LF errors we were 
getting with the previous release.
