I'd try enabling IMAP telemetry logging for that user and see what 
Squirrelmail is actually trying to do.  How is it different from the IMAP 
commands Outlook, Thunderbird, etc use for the same operation?

Also, that log plus a gdb backtrace and/or strace output would probably be 
useful to the developers in identifying any bug in Cyrus.
