Thanks. Forget to mention it, I did that several times as well, both
on the inbox as well as the moved mbox file's index.
I gave compiling 1.0.alpha5 a try today as Timo mentions many mbox
fixes in the release notes; stopped dovecot, installed alpha5,
removed the index and everything else relating to the mbox file in
the .imap directory, started dovecot and fired up my mail client:

messages_count too large (1121 > 1115)
Dec 15 23:33:26 sand dovecot: child 91377 (imap) killed with signal 11
I'm amazed how quickly it gets to that mbox and has a corrupt index
file for it, though.
bummer - mo
