I was able to unintentionally duplicate an email by moving it to a new folder just after asking for its attachment to be deleted.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an email with an attachment (from IMAP in my case)
2. Delete the attachment (right click, delete, etc.)
3. Close the email
4. Drag the email to a new folder
Actual Results:  
Email is copied to new folder

Expected Results:  
Email is moved to the new folder

David can you reproduce easily ? and Have you tried safe mode? (see for more information)

Id you can easily reproduce in safe mode , could you generate Imap logs  as described at ?

I am able to reproduce this;  the attachment deletion takes a while (10-20 seconds maybe?) so there is ample opportunity to try it.

I haven't had a chance to try with safe mode / logging yet but I will do that and follow up.
Do you still see this issue when using version 5 or 6 (due out a week)?
