[Dovecot] Can only see some folders of inbox

I've had a working system for ages now with Postfix/Dovecot/Squirrelmail.


This evening the right hand pane of Squirrel Mail failed to complete with the Inbox selected but would show some of the other folders.  I can also filter and access mail from the 'Invisible' inbox.


Other mailboxes on the same server are fine.


I've copied my version number below and the output of dovecot -n


In the dovecot.log I can see lots of entries like: Warning I/O leak: 0x804d640 (13) or (15) and IMAP login killed with signal 15.


I get the same behaviour if I connect with Outlook 2007 configured for IMAP.


The mailbox has a lot of mail in it: easily a couple of GB.


Very puzzled and would appreciate any help.


Many thanks in advance,
