This is most likely a bug in your server - you might try googling for the solution. I think it's an issue with dovecot, and there's a configuration setting you can make to fix it.

Thunderbird 17.2
Fedora Core 16 (64-bit)

TAG LIST:
1: CRITICAL
2: IMPORTANT
3: DIRECT
4: MCAST
5: SSL
6: VENDOR
7: LIST
8: EXP01
9: EXP03
   EXP07
   EXP30
   EXP90

SOME tags, but not all, are removed when mail is re-fetched; notably the following tags:

CRITICAL  [1]
IMPORTANT [2]
MCAST     [4]
VENDOR    [6]
BCAST     [8]


magically vanish when the mailbox is refreshed; others remain.

Mail server [IMAP] is:
dovecot-1.0.14

Am researching to see if another filter rule may be causing an issue, but I didn't see any way to un-tag a message using a directive, so this is a mystery to me.

Short response:  RESOLVED

Long-ish response:  Getting rid of /home/vmail/${MDOMAIN}/${USER}/dovecot-keywords (and the other metadata files) seemed to fix the issue, if you have the access to do so (most won't -- send a mail to your email admin asking him to delete the top-level metadata files for you).
