[Dovecot] Thunderbird and hanging "Copying message to Sent folder..."

Here's a work-around for the problem that appears to work
and maybe also hints at the root of the problem:

If you setup the Thunderbird account to "Place a copy in:..."
"Other" and then select the Sent folder of the account (rather
than just selecting "Sent Folder on: ..."), the problem appears
to go away.

I can't tell for sure, but Thunderbird seems to send the copy
using a different connection than the one used for sending the
message itself if you set things up in this way.

The email still gets copied to the same Sent folder, so there's
no change there.
