Hmmm... sounds like it was copy/deleting them instead of simply mv'ing 
them. Shouldn't moves be almost instantaneous? At least as long as you 
are using an IMAP server that does moves properly? I think any IMAP 
server should do this when maildir is used, but I don't think it is 
possible with mbox, however I know dovecot can do this when mdbox is used.

So, that is the first question to answer. Then, if you're using maildir, 
then is roundcube not issuing the correct IMAP command? Or maybe your 
server doesn't mv messages even when using maildir?

Status message are always a good thing, anyway, so +1 to this regardless...
