[Dovecot] link() problem with dovecot-imapd

I'm having a few problems with dovecot-imapd (installed from debian
unstable) and am after some much needed help, all is set up and
configured, except for this final problem of when I try and move or copy
a message from one Maildir to another. I have the option
"maildir_copy_with_hardlinks = no" in the the dovecot.conf file but it
still seems to be trying to link() the file instead of doing a proper copy.
There is a log fragment below for when I try to do a move, the FS that
my Maildir is on doesn't support link() hence the problem. It seems to
be doing a proper copy to get it into the tmp/ part of the Maildir and
then a link() to put it in new/.
Any ideas on how to cure this?
