Recommendations for Thunderbird settings when it hangs copying to "sent folder"

Cyrus 2.1.18 on Debian Sarge used mostly with Thunderbird 1.0.6 on 
Windows XP. One NAT router and an additional router / switch between the 
server and the TB clients.

Occasionally (it appears that this happens usually after intensive use 
of the search function) the TB client hangs after sending out a mail 
with the message "copying to sent folder". It is not related to the size 
of the message. The message *is* sent out but then we have to restart 
the TB client. No chance to save the message in the IMAP sent folder.

There are a few bug reports available on this but I haven't found a real 
solution so far. Does anybody use the combination of TB and Cyrus 
without problems? Could we use a sieve script to put a copy of each 
outgoing mail into the sent folder (instead of having the client do this)?

Thanks Klaus
