They aren't exactly good, but shouldn't really happen either. The first
one is completely transparent to users, the second one probably send
some error to client.

If you can figure out a way to reproduce any of these, I'd like to know.
I haven't seen them myself for a long time.

Although if locking is set wrong, these can happen. Can your users
access the mboxes directly or using some other software than Dovecot?
