We have just tried the following:

1) Create a new folder ARCHIVE2 under INBOX in KMail
2) Verify that the properties are accessible
3) On the IMAP server, copy all subfolders from one of the faulty folders into
the newly created one and let Cyrus rebuild all necessary indexes (reason we
did this on the server rather than in KMail: Performance plus KMail tends to
crash frequently when moving IMAP folders)
4) In KMail, subscribe to all new subfolders of ARCHIVE2

Shortly thereafter, the properties of ARCHIVE2 became inaccessible again.
What's worse: We use "Properties -> Retrieval" to set the ARCHIVE folder plus
all subfolders to "never update" in order to improve performance. With the
folders where the properties vanish, this inheritance no longer works and the
subfolders are still updated each mailcheck, causing a huge performance drain.
