I think that when a message is marked as duplicate i should see a line like:

Jun  5 09:11:24 thot lmtpunix[23224]: dupelim: eliminated duplicate message to 
user.beppe id <200706050911.08506.giuseppe_ravasio at> (delivery)

in fact searching the id in a month logs returns only the lines included in my 
first email... so it seems that there was no duplicate suppression.

Last but not least it doesn't explain why the message is on the FS but not in 
the IMAP folder's index!
