Default dovecot problem -- not deleting messages from server after downloading them

I recently installed CentOS 6.0 and Dovecot 2.0.

My problem is that, when I download emails to my laptop (running
Thunderbird), the emails are NOT deleted from my server. They stay
there and are downloaded again and again. 8-(

The "Leave messages on server" option in Thunderbird is not checked.

I have several laptops that used to work when I ran CentOS 5.6 / Dovecot
1.x. I haven't changed their configuration and they all have the same
problem.

Here's a sample (personal data removed) of /var/log/maillog when I
download messages (note the "del=0/487" on the 2nd line):

Aug 13 14:28:54 chasserver dovecot: pop3-login: Login: user=<centos>,
method=PLAIN, rip=192.168.0.2, lip=192.168.0.27, mpid=18393, TLS
Aug 13 14:29:28 chasserver dovecot: pop3(centos): Disconnected: Logged
out top=0/0, retr=487/2134628, del=0/487, size=2126323

My "dovecot -n" output is below.

Thanks,
Charlie

# dovecot -n

mail_location = mbox:~/mail:INBOX=/var/mail/%u

passdb {
driver = pam
}
ssl_cert = </etc/pki/dovecot/certs/dovecot.pem
ssl_key = </etc/pki/dovecot/private/dovecot.pem
userdb {
driver = passwd
}

According to the POP3 protocol messages are first marked to be deleted
by the server on DELE command, but only really deleted in the UPDATE
state, means after the QUIT command.
