agree, when i first run at that problem
maildir_broken_file_sizes=yes didnt fixed it, i had to repair maildirs
manual by script, upgraded dovecot 2.1.x to newer version, that problem
never came back again, just for interest what dovecot source did you
use, did you you compile modifications by your own ?
