For what its worth - I have had this problem ever since I started using 
IMAP... we had it when we used Courier-imap, and we have it using 
dovecot (both on linux, using Thunderbird for the client)... It is kind 
of irritating, but I kind of got used to it, and tell people to just 
delete these on a regular basis...

Not that I wouldn't like to see this problem fixed... ;)
