Really hard to say what commit probably fixed that already. Dovecot uses a very dynamic development model. There are old versions like 2.0.9 which people still try to get help with since they are in some dusted distro repository, but known to have partially broken features... Looking at the CVS of Dovecot there are so many changes it's really hard to say there was an issue or not.

One changelog (2.2.11) however indicates the search was not working as it should:

 - IMAP: SEARCH/SORT PARTIAL was handled completely wrong in v2.2.11+

You may want to look at the official Enterprise repository which does support Ubuntu. This one does have the current stable releases in it and is not undergoing so many changes compared to the CVS auto-compiles also offered:

Give that one a try with vanilla search...
