I've seen this problem before, but I don't think it's a bug. We had a
user with several mailboxes with more than a couple thousand e-mails per
folder. We're also running squirrelmail on top of courier-imap.
The current development version of squirrelmail has a new feature for
the purpose of correcting this. Current (in Sarge) versions of
squirrelmail look at the headers for every e-mail in the folder. The new
version will only look at the headers for each e-mail that will be
displayed on the current page.
