Hi Adam,

Think you on the right track with Dovecot being the culprit, unfort I 
decided to delete filters on two machines and leave a desktop on to do 
so i can't test a couple of settings in dovecot.conf.

One refers to caching in memory to save on disk writes - so if the other 
filter chimes in before the write has been done, that could be it still in
the mail folder unmoved.
