There are two potential reasons for this. One is that Dovecot replies 
something wrong and causes Thunderbird to send negative message size 
request. Another is that it's entirely Thunderbird bug which Dovecot 
just points out. Most (all?) other servers would treat -34800 as 
4294932496 and hide the problem. This is what Dovecot 0.99.x did too.

So far I'm thinking it's Thunderbird bug which should be fixed. Even if 
Dovecot was responsible in some way for it, it shouldn't be sending 
negative message sizes.
