That's a good point Timo and one which I hadn't necessarily thought of! 
After thinking about it, I realize that these problems happen when I 
move messages from a commercial IMAP email provider (fastmail.fm) to my 
own, home server (running Dovecot 1.0.rc15 on Ubuntu).  In all cases my 
client of choice is Thunderbird 1.x & 2.x run from an equal mix of 
Windows, Mac OS/X and Linux platforms.
