I ran into exactly this problem as well, it is infuriating. A
workaround was discussed here awhile back. Sticking this in the
"protocol imap" block of dovecot.conf solved the problem completely:
imap_capability = IMAP4rev1 LITERAL+ SASL-IR LOGIN-REFERRALS ID ENABLE
IDLE SORT SORT=DISPLAY THREAD=REFERENCES THREAD=REFS MULTIAPPEND
UNSELECT CHILDREN NAMESPACE UIDP
LUS LIST-EXTENDED I18NLEVEL=1 ESEARCH ESORT SEARCHRES WITHIN
That should all be one line; watch for wrappage.
