Here is the log of a test "doveadm -D altmove -r -u user all" on our setup.

But I doubt it contains anything useful besides mailbox and config details.

The post from Ewald Dieterich <ewald at mailbox.org> seems on the right 
track, although I didn't tested the patch.

By the way, the "doveadm altmove -r" does not exactly has no effect: it 
renumbers and equalize (compress) the mail files in alt storage. But the 
messages that were here stay here.
