imap c-client: version 2001 release candidate 1 (from FreeBSD ports current)

imap server: Courier-IMAP 1.3.12

1. I login using telnet client on port 143 of my IMAP server:
me: a001 LOGIN username password
server: a001 OK LOGIN Ok.
sv: a001 (bla lba bla)
sv: ...
sv: a001 OK [READ-WRITE] Ok.
me: a001 SEARCH HEADER "Message-Id" "<>"
sv: * SEARCH 1
sv: a001 OK SEARCH done.

As we can see server has found the message (msgno=1)

2. I use PHP script to do exactly the same:
$imap=imap_open("{localhost:143}INBOX", "username", "password", 0); // this works beacause other imap_ things works (not included)
$a=imap_search($imap, 'HEADER "Message-Id" "<>"', SE_UID);

It does not find the message, however:

$a=imap_search($imap, 'TEXT "<>"', SE_UID);

Finds one.

The other search key that did not worked properly from PHP, (but in telnet session worked) is UID

The c-client library only supports a limited set of search words. See the imap_search() manual page or the c-client source for info.

Why is the search set limited ?

How could I extend it ?
