i found that such folders work in exchange might work in version
2000/2003 and do not in 2007, so it seems that must be worked out
in a pure exchange upgrade too, so migration ms transporter suite should
handle it somehow, however Ralfs Problem seems to be so rare that it
could more easy solved rename that folder by hand
so we should now get back to dovecot support *g
