Cut&pasted off the terminal man page output.  Looking into
man1/doveadm-move.1, I see

 	.B doveadm move \-u jane Archive/2011/09 mailbox INBOX BEFORE \(rs
 	.B 2011-10-01 SINCE 01-Sep-2011

so it's a problem with my nroff, not dovecot's man pages.  (Hmm, it
happens with groff too -- it appears to be some sort of line length bug.)

Yes, this makes much more sense.
