formail not parsing folder

I'm trying to convert email from our U Wash IMAP server over to Cyrus, 
using several Perl utilities mentioned in the O'Reilly IMAP book.  One 
of these, folderxfer, uses formail to split the U Wash mbox file into 
separate messages.  This is working fine, except for a couple of 
people's "Sent Items" folders, which formail doesn't seem to be able to 
parse into messages.  Apparently, "Sent Items" is created by our 
Horde/IMP webmail software.  Has anyone seen this?  Any solutions?  I've 
tried various combinations of formail switches, but nothing seems to 
split these folders correctly.  Thanks.
