[Dovecot] Question about mdbox alt storage in Dovecot 2.0

Reading 2.1rc6 changelog I see this: 

mdbox: When saving
to alt storage, Dovecot didn't append as much
 data to m.* files as it
could have.

Could you elaborate more on this? Has been ported to
Dovecot 2.0?

I've finally finished all of my email backlog. If you haven't received
an answer to some question/bugreport, resend the mail.

hopefully the last v2.1 RC. If I don't receive any (serious) bug reports
about this release in next few days, I'll just change the version number
to v2.1.0 (and maybe update man pages, some are still missing..)
I'll also create dovecot-2.2 hg repository today and add some pending
patches from Stephan there and start doing some early spring cleaning in
there. :)

really had to be done soon and I didn't want v2.2.0 release to be only a
few months after v2.1.0 with barely any new features.
