Oh, now I notice you mentioned you use Pine to access the mailbox
directly. That explains the error, since it uses the same headers as
Dovecot. But I don't know why Pine would change the UIDVALIDITY, since
it should be compatible with how Dovecot uses it..
One solution at least would be to make Pine access the mailbox via IMAP
instead of doing it directly.
