Could you send me an article demonstrating the problem?

I'm not familiar with the IMAP code, but AFAICS, `nnimap-demule' is
only used when getting headers or body:

| nnimap.el:611:              headers (nnimap-demule

(defun nnimap-retrieve-headers-progress ()
  "Hook to insert NOV line for current article into `nntp-server-buffer'."

| nnimap.el:951:         (nnimap-demule

(defun nnimap-callback (article gnus-callback buffer)
  (when (eq article (imap-current-message))
    (remove-hook 'imap-fetch-data-hook
                 (nnimap-make-callback article gnus-callback buffer))
    (with-current-buffer buffer
       (with-current-buffer nnimap-server-buffer
          (if (imap-capability 'IMAP4rev1)
              ;; xxx don't just use car? alist doesn't contain
              ;; anything else now, but it might...
              (nth 2 (car (imap-message-get article 'BODYDETAIL)))
            (imap-message-get article 'RFC822)))))
      (funcall gnus-callback t))))

| nnimap.el:977:                (insert (nnimap-demule (if detail

(defun nnimap-request-article-part (article part prop &optional
                                            group server to-buffer detail)

Bye, Reiner.
