So far I've heard only positive reports :)

Hmm.. Just one second difference. Is it always one second?

If you don't use fcntl locking (and with NFS you probably won't), you'd 
have to enable mbox_read_dotlock, otherwise mailbox isn't locked for 
reading at all and that could cause problems. I think I'll make Dovecot 
complain about this if it's not done..
