We are trying to convert all mbox mail on our systems to mdbox using 
dsync, in order to be able to use email sub-folders in Thunderbird.

Everything works fine for non-inbox folders, however the inbox folders 
are not getting converted.

We used:

*dsync -v convert mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u*

*dovecot --version*
2.0.beta6 (3156315704ef) (shipping with RHEL6/SL6)

*dovecot -n*
# 2.0.beta6 (3156315704ef): /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
# OS: Linux 2.6.32-71.18.2.el6.i686 i686 Scientific Linux release 6.0 
mail_location = mdbox:~/mdbox
mbox_write_locks = fcntl
passdb {
   driver = pam
protocols = imap
service auth {
   unix_listener /var/spool/postfix/private/auth {
     group = postfix
     mode = 0666
     user = postfix
ssl = required
ssl_cert = </etc/pki/dovecot/certs/dovecot.pem
ssl_key = </etc/pki/dovecot/private/dovecot.pem
userdb {
   driver = passwd
