what if you use "Rebuild folder tree" option after the failed move? By
looking at the IMAP transcript in your initial post, it looks like the
new folder (Travel/Misc) is being created, but the server errors out
when Claws Mail tries to copy first message to it (looks like the
server does not support "UID COPY" command).

At no point do I see deletion of content of old folder, or old folder
itself, so it should at least still be there on the server.
