Please always try to provide some basic system info when asking for help.

dovecot version? doveconf -n output? actual commands you are typing? 
logs of the events?

Also remember, dsync has been completely rewritten for the upcoming 2.2 
(at rc3 now), and has always been a little problematic in earlier 
versions (which I guess was the reason for the rewrite)...
