I have yet to see from my testers if mailbox corruption still occurs.

I have not seen these errors in the log file with this version
(except perhaps the first time people checked their mail after
the upgrade). Thank you!

I keep seeing the following message from time to time:

| May 27 16:04:38 munster imap(xxxx): Our dotlock file /home/xxxx/Mail/mrtg.lock was modified (1085666677 vs 1085666678), assuming it wasn't overridden

Could it still be a NFS-locking problem?

Dovecot uses: mbox_locks = dotlock

Procmail (on the same server, FreeBSD 5.2) uses:
	 Locking strategies:     dotlocking, lockf()

Procmail (on another server, Tru64) uses:
	 Locking strategies:     dotlocking, fcntl(), lockf(), flock()

I suppose I must use exactly the same locking facilities, but
there seems to be differences between reading and writing a mbox
in Dovecot.
