The following is occurring consistently on users in only one vhost
domain. Other vhost domains are not having the problem. The email
client in use is the same (in both the working and non-working domains).

Once this message starts occurring, dovecot stops deleting retrieved
messages when the user retrieves mail (with 'delete from server' set).
The result is that the entire mailbox contents are fetched each
time, resulting in copious amounts of duplicate messages.
I'm on the rc8 RPM that comes with FC5, but am willing to remove it
and install a later Dovecot built from source.
1) Is this a known problem that can be fixed by upgrading?
2) If not, can someone tell me what this message means exactly, and
how to gather more information for debugging?
The MTA is Postfix.
