This only happens to the INBOX folder, all other folders keep their
marks just fine. Since on the server the INBOX folder is the only one
that is not stored somewhere in my home dir, I am guessing that there
are some subtle locking/permissions issues in dovecot.

A possible and very effective workarround is to have a default filter
rule that moves all email away from INBOX into another folder. Like

(setq nnimap-split-inbox "INBOX"
      '(("myaccount" ("INBOX" (("mailbox" ""))))))

Regards, and thanks,
