X-OfflineIMAP prevents turning mails with several Gmail labels into hardlinks

I set up OfflineIMAP with Dovecot, so Gnus could access it (it has trouble
directly accessing maildirs). At first I had
localfolders = ~/Archive/Mail
and downloaded everything. I was able to run hardlink -t on the folder to
approximately halve its size. Then I deleted it and re-downloaded with
preauthtunnel = /usr/sbin/dovecot --exec-mail imap
now every message has an X-OfflineIMAP header, which aren't the same on
identical messages, so hardlink doesn't work.
What's X-OfflineIMAP for, and can I get rid of it? I'm using 18.104.22.168ubuntu1
from Ubuntu 10.10, but I can use the git repo if that fixes my problem.
