I don't know if dovecot is creating the lock files, but it certainly
appears from the logs (provided in my original email) that Dovecot is
renaming them when the users go to log in.
Further checking- the affected messages are not the result of some
contention between procmail and dovecot; one of the affected messages
came in at 11AM the day before the lockfile was renamed.
