"Deleted on server" error in KMail

Hi folks.  For the past 3 days or so, when my KMail sync with an IMAP account, 
I frequently get an error to the effect of "Messages in folder X were deleted 
on the server.  Delete them locally?"  It then lists several UIDs, which 
don't seem to have any pattern.

I am fairly certain that nothing is being deleted, as regardless of whether I 
click Yes or No it doesn't seem like anything is removed, at least from my 
local copy.  (I'm using Disconnected IMAP so that my local filters work.)  
But every time it complains it blocks the IMAP process, and if I'm away from 
my computer at the time, it means it blocks it until I come back and push a 

Any idea what's going on?  Should I be worried about data loss here?  Is this 
a KMail problem or IMAP server problem?

Running Debian Sid, KMail 1.9.4 using KDE 3.5.4.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
