Bug#521130: icedove: can't save message to Sent folder on IMAP server

Package: icedove
Severity: normal

This behavior only happens sometimes.  It can begin to happen after running normally 
for a while.  I can fix by killing and restarting icedove.

I compose a message and send it.  When icedove tries to copy the message to the
Sent folder, it spits up an error box:

There was an error copying the message to the Sent folder.  Retry?

Retrying multiple times does not help.

The server is dovecot-imapd  1:1.0.15-2.3 on debian testing x86_64.  The connection
is TLS.

I've tried increasing logging on dovecot-imapd, but all I see is:
