I have the same problem using bid: 2002071117 with cyrus-imapd-2.1.4-2.
But I get always the message "server responded: mailbox doesn't exist".
This happens when I select empty trash for the imap account in the file menu or
when using the "empty trash on exit" setting and exiting the mail reader.
I get an additional "server responded: mailbox doesn't exist" when the config
item "expunge inbox on exit" is also checked.

When I select the trash folder after using the empty trash menu item (which
produces the errror message as described above) I get again the error msg, and
the folder is displayed as empty. If I select an other folder afterwards and
then again the trash, everything works as expected, but the trashcan is still full.

I consider this bug as resolved. I didn't experience this problem with later
releases anymore.

For me it now works as well. I don't know why it didn't until yesterday.
Probably because there was no uptodate trash.msf file?
