Yes, I did.

The process size did only grow to about 22 MB...

I just did, it also starts to eat mem...

No, the destination box was completely empty before I started to copy 

Tomorrow I'll switch of SSL and log the IMAP chatter between kMail and 
dovecot. That's slowly getting ridiculous...

However, I fear kMail may generate enormous IMAP commands while copying / 
deleting, as a selected block of messages in a sorted message list in 
kMail probably is some more or less random set of message numbers, right?
