Any chance you're hitting "$NEWSGROUP" and not "$NEWSGROUP.0"?
(or ".1", ".2" ...)?

I had to split the mailboxes into slices (".0"-".$N") to deal
with client-side limitations; so "$NEWSGROUP" is just an empty
folder with sub-folders containing messages.

Otherwise, stdout should have a trace of commands issued by the
client, and strace/truss/tcpdump/etc should show more...

It's been a while since I've really touched this part of the
IMAP code (and it's been a long year :x), but I don't think I
ever saw something like this while working on it.
