when I call the imap_search function with 
criteria which includes dates, the search
seems to fail.

This will work:
subject "image"

This will fail:
subject "image" since 1-Jan-1997

I'm using the Cyrus IMAP server.  Both strings 
work fine if I submit them directly to the 
IMAP server by telnetting in.

at least some of the search_related functions 
in c-client seem to be stuck with IMAPv2
causing this (and maybe other) problems ?

after looking at the c-client library and PHP's implementation in
imap.c, I think the problem is the use of the mail_criteria() 
It is restricted to IMAP2.

It should be possible to get full IMAP search functionality
by creating and filling in the SEARCHPGM *pgm argument to
mail_search_full() directly.
