Or anti-spam plugin?

Also, your 'subject regexpcase "[Bug*]" move "#mh/mailbox/Trash"' rule
is wrong and is very probably the culprit. you probably mean:

subject regexpcase "\[Bug .*\]" move "#mh/mailbox/Trash"

Square brackets are normally used in regexp to match character class,
like '[a-z]' means any letter between a and z. 
[Bug*] would match anything containing Bug (or even Bgu, guB, gu,
but etc) - test with bash and variations of

echo '[Bug 1234] tralala'|grep --color '[Bug*]'
echo '[but 1234] tralala'|grep --color '[Bug*]'

compare with
echo '[Bug 1234] tralaa'|grep --color '\[Bug .*\]'
