In classic configuration, proxy user in imapd.conf on frontends should 
not be an administrator on backend indeed.  However, proxy user in 
imapd.conf on backends should be an administrator on other backends (for 
user moves to work).  Basically, you'll use at least two different proxy 
users (one for frontends without administrative rights, and the other 
one for backends with administrative rights).

I've never done anything other than classic Murder configuration. 
However my guess is that in any type of configuration where backends 
also serve the role of frontend, you should configure proxy user the way 
you would do it on backend (as an admin user on all other backends).

Also, check that allowusermoves is set to 1 (default is 0).
